Aromas of lemon, some apple, beeswax and some wet stone. The acidity is there along with a nice richness, medium-full bodied and wide along with very good persistence, delicious. 91-92 almost
Arômes de citron, pommes, roche mouillée et cire d’abeille. Une bouche pleine et large, tension et richesse se côtoient avec une longue finale persistante. Délicieux. 91-92 — 5 days ago
Love this wine. Electric boogaloo type wine. So much energy. Could power a small house! Nose is high toned meyer lemon, fresh almonds, saline minerals, persian cucumber, swimming pool. Just wow nose. Palate is just electric! ⚡️so much acid and texture. Insane minerality. Pretty much no fruit. Sappy and extracted with a never ending finish. Structured to a T. Wow wine and wonderful. As it airs the nose gets phyllo dough and that takes this over the top! — 13 days ago
Chenin sur la richesse et l'opulence, mais malgré tout sans sucre résiduel perceptible. Miel, fleurs, citron confit, légère impression de fumée. Et cette acidité qui débarque en finale pour laver le palais et inviter la prochaine gorgée. Je recommande. Excellent RQP. — a day ago
A nose of strawberries, red peppers, some vegetal and earthy tones. Palate is medium bodied plus, but with nice acidity and some approachable tannins, that have just a tad of dryness on the finish, nice bottle and surprisingly fresh in this warm weather.
Nez de fruits rouges, fraises entre autres, poivron rouge, un peu de végétal et un côté terreux. Une bouche de corps moyen à puissant, acidité assez vive, mais avec des tannins assez agréables malgré une légère sècheresse qui n’est pas désagréable en fin de bouche. 89-90 — 14 days ago
Lovely medium to dark yellow color with a ripe, but not maderized nose & a full, but well balanced body with a great complexity & integrated acidity and a long, log aftertaste. 4.5/5. — 2 days ago
Drank over the course of three days; just like Mufasa, this fine drop from Anjou was dignified and imposing until the end. Surprised that any sniff of oxidation - and there was near none - was in reality a welcomed influence. Would happily order a case of this medium bodied blend of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. A mouthful of ripe strawberries and plums, a little perfume, low acid (but enough so it wasn’t flabby), soft tannins with a slightly jammy concentration at the tail. Confident this would be a pleasure to have any day, at any hour, meal or no meal, friends or no friends, in bed, at a table, or on the floor. A beautiful wine beautifully made. Bravo J. C.
