Clos de la Bergerie Savennières Roche aux Moines Chenin Blanc 2014

Holy Joly! A gorgeous, glossy golden hue that’s slightly cloudy in the natural, Joly way. A beautiful perfume of orange citrus and honeysuckle. Wild but not funky. Not even sure of that makes sense but I think you would get it once you smell it. On the palate it’s marmalade and heavily bruised apple...reminds me a lot of the 2013 I had earlier this year...but more powerful. The snappy acidity gives it a long, long finish. I adore these wines. — 8 days ago

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

Funky barnyard and earth on the nose with notes of botrytis (Noble Rot) of Chenin Blanc. Incredibly smooth with notes of pear, honeysuckle,pineapple, ginger (gingerbread cookies), lemon peel, and chamomile tea.... amazing how this wine continues to change as it opens up.... very different and interesting. 😀🇨🇵🍷Santè — 9 days ago
