Lovely pure nose, almonds, smells the acid, pear, ripe but also hugely mineral, juicy, high acid and refined. Salty and very complex finish. Huge huge acid. — 3 days ago

Domaine Bobinet

Du Rififi a Beaulieu Chenin Blanc

Not like the beer capped Pet Nats - not necessarily better, but different. Traditional. It’s rich and austere and elegant and has more in common with grower’s champagne. The aromas are bold with autolyse and white flowers with flavors of baked apples and bitter almonds. — 9 days ago

Agnès et René Mosse

Les Bonnes Blanches Anjou Chenin Blanc 2015

Vintage 2015 / Paired with a salmon tartare with Puy lentils / beautiful smell that gives more and more while nosing and tasting. Mandarins, ananas and minerals in smell. Flint. A vague impression of honey, always characteristic for chenin blanc. Juicy taste. Very quaffable. Also good with my fish (Limande) ánd French cheese (Cantal). Makes happy. — a day ago

Domaine des Baumard

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

In 1953, Jean Baumard acquired vineyard in Quarts de Chaume, in 1968, purchased substantial acreage in Savennieres. Today Jean’s son, Florent, manages the winery. Aromas of green fruits, floral and flinty notes. On the palate green apple, pear, melon and slight nutty flavors, well balanced with acidity. Medium+ length ending, no fluttering with fresh juicy mineral, just like the butterfly on the label! Will age well if you can resist opening. — 6 days ago
