Too good to be true. It’s like they made this just to win the Bourgogne game. Taste like declassified everything noble. All over the place insanity just brimming with too much character to pinpoint. Value is a crazy understatement. — 6 days ago
My first Chenin from South Africa, and my first time with this producer. Smells of baked apple and beeswax with a touch of honeysuckle aromatics and rich lemon oil. It’s viscous yet acidic. Bold. Touch of honeycomb sweetness with white peach, tart stone fruits and Granny Smith apple crisps notes on the palate. Delicious! Thanks to my buddy @David L for this! On the hunt to get more! — 3 days ago
I’ve had Jurassic Park Chenin from a handful of producers and I really like Jeff Fischer’s version. It’s dry Chenin in the shadow of, maybe, Huet dry Chenin. Creamy and acidic, fruity, floral, and spiced. Peaches, white flowers, and baking spices upfront. It picks up body from the lees and some time in oak. — 5 days ago
The Loire Valley has come to be a place to go for real solid Sauvignon Blanc. Touraine is a place near Sancerre which has some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the Loire and Touraine is showing its moxie. I picked up the 2018 Domaine des Corbilliéres Touraine Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose is very expressive fruit, lots of peach, lime, grapefruit, nectarine, white flowers, vanilla, pie crust, minerality and wet rocks.
The palate has notes of lime, peach, nectarine, grapefruit, minerality and wet river rock.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that follows with a long fresh crisp finish. The weekend is upon us, so please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 10 days ago
I don’t think I can remember a burgundy that has smelled so much like a northern Rhône wine. Loved the aromatics! A distinct blood/iron note with herbs, earthiness, and crunchy cranberry. Slightly darker profile on the palate with tar, black raspberries, rose petals and some spice. Good acidity here...not sharp nor flabby, with a soft profile after a short decant. — 3 days ago
Really like this Wine. The Baumard family growing the noble Chenin at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, in 1953 they acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, & in 1968, purchased acreage in Savennieres. Straw with full fruit and light spice aromas. On the palate ripe apple, pear & melon, complex, with vivid acidity. Lingering, ending with mineral and sweet honey character. Wow. A white that should age well. Had this 9 months ago, even better now!! — 8 days ago
