Flinty, aroma is basically nill. But also I had marinara sauce before, so maybe my senses are all outta whack.
Super elegant vouvray (autocorrect corrected vouvray to “boy rat”... which, why?)
Dry, yes, but balanced with a nicely textured creamy mouthfeel. Chewy. Lemon peel, mangoes, minerals, and even a bit of lychee.
Recommended by the friends at Frankly Wines. Great value. — 2 days ago
Always a favorite Loire Valley white! Whoa! This is very reminiscent of a New Zealand SB! That cat box aroma/taste (I know that sounds weird) is standing up very proud! Although not quite the acidic finish from NZ. An excellent selection if you can accept the funk! — 3 days ago
Delicious thick with low acid, apples, chamoy, and almost a lambec beer style funk. Even though I used to work in banking this one reminds me of that hipster girl that might skip a few showers and overcompensate with patchouly oil but watching her smile is like the sun rising and the curves make you want to buy a Lamborghini.￼ Bright, and round in ways that defy Euclidean geometry. ￼Very delicious. — 6 days ago
Vintage 1989 | Le Moulin d’Angibault, Alain Ferran, Vernou sur Brenne. Amazing young colour of this Chenin Blanc, shy smell, balanced taste with good counterpart from acids to sweetness. Would have guessed at least twenty years younger if tasted blind. Paired with a mixed fruit dessert. — 18 days ago
Le Bouchet is an amazing value Chenin Blanc grown within the Vouvray appellation, but vinified across the river in Montlouis. It was made by Francois Chidaine with a vintage of 2014 and an ABV of 13.5%. It was $25 at @thomasliquors 🙌🙌
👁 It has a deep golden hue.
👃 On the nose, this wine has a medium(+) intensity of developing aromas, including notes of desiccated apple, bruised yellow pear, lemon curd, chalk, wet stone, dried white flowers, and honeycomb. The aromas are concentrated.
👄On the palate this wine is dry with notable residual sugar (possibly off-dry), it has medium(+) acidity, a medium(+) body due to the richness of the texture, medium alcohol, and a medium(+) intensity of flavors consistent with the nose, although with brighter citric influences. The finish is medium.
This wine has complexity; it's concentrated; it's for the cerebral type. I could see it pairing well with a variety of salads and cheeses and/or a pork roulade; we’re pairing it tonight with an herbed, grilled chicken, grilled bell peppers, and roasted asparagus.
