Fresh white florals on the nose, tastes of lemon bars, creamy and smooth without sweetness. It’s salty and acidic, dry short finish. Great find for the price, will definitely revisit in summer. — 12 days ago
Super sick serious Chenin. Nose of beeswax, almonds, superb minerality, hint of honey, so deep, concentrated and super deep with intense acidity and explosiveness. So pure and fresh. Clean. Lanolin. Superb texture. Juicy and so so clean. Long and lingering. Superb structure and length. Lingers forever. Salty finish. Huge wine. Massively structured and also a hint of lime. Sick. — 7 days ago
I’ll admit it. I had no idea Huet made a sparkler. They do and it’s really good. All chenin blanc (obviously) and at 10 years old it’s starting to drink well but could definitely go longer. Bone dry, chalky and with pear and lychee notes abounding. A nice change up in sparklers. — 2 days ago
A delicious Chenin Blanc from France. Showing honey, yellow apples, apricot, tropical fruits, pineapples, citrus and spices.
Full bodied with medium acidity.
Dry to off dry on the palate and delicious.
Good by itself or with food. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.
100% Chenin Blanc grapes from Anjou.
12.5% alcohol by volume.

Not a fan of most Chinons Blanc, as they often start life lean and mean, then go absolutely nowhere. This, however, is that rare exception: already tender and alluring, showing acacia, melon, honeysuckle and wet gravel, with an unctuous texture and a fair dash of residual sugar (albeit perfectly balanced by massive acids). Fabulous. — 6 days ago
One of my favorite small production wine, 300 cases. Cal Nicholson spent his youth in So. CA & after a long marketing career he hung up his spurs to follow his 2 real interests in life – surfing & wine making. Jones is the maiden name of Cal’s wife Pam. A wonderful wine. Aromas of lemon citrus with herb, stone & tropical fruits. Palate, peach, Granny Smith apple & ripe melon flavors with lively citrus zest wrapped in lbalanced acidity. Lingering finish ending with mineral citrus finish. Consistent! Nice! — 4 days ago

Les vignes nobles de Sophie Bertin. Menetou Salon blanc. Sauvignon blanc 2018
Herbal nose with lemon and a bit of chalk. Very nice. The palate is well balanced, matter, a chalky touch too, a great acid frame, some grip on the sides and the end of the palate hits kind of wall, where the grip transforms into a slightly bitter, herbal touch which leads to a lemony finish. This is very good — 8 days ago
