Le Portail Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

A really gorgeous French Chenin Blanc from Vouvray.Wonderfully aromatic, full and round, with a golden colour. Notes of exotic tropical fruits, honey, & crushed gravel on the nose. The palate opens with pronounced minerality and then reveals smoky notes and a lingering finish. Truly wonderful. — 9 days ago

Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Firing on all cylinders. Pure bliss. Attenuated nose due to youth...palate is honeyed, apricot, whiff of petrol, slate, jasmine, honeysuckle...truly something to behold. And a dream pairing with kolhapuri mutton. — 9 days ago

Yummy!!!! Silky, ever so slightly syrupy, quite a deep complex fruity flavour. A very bold white, with zingy grapefruit / lime (I think) along the sides of the tongue with a juicy middle. Would be amazing with a roast chicken or possibly pork in a creamy sauce. — 2 days ago

Le Peu Morier Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

It’s good it’s gold it’s somewhat aged but still sharp on top of honey and apple sauce but enough of an undercurrent of mineral to say “hey I’m Vouvray” so I like this one for the general scrumptious nature and...solid predictability. Goodness. It is good-ness. — 14 days ago

Trinch Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2016

Quite vegetal at first but then it mellows into a lovely Loire CF. Exactly what you want when you pull a cork on one of these. Blackberries, raspberries, and red bell pepper along with some green tea leaves and black stone. — 11 days ago
