Now that Chenin finally have got its big breakthrough, its time to devour in its versatility. Yet it is still flying under the radar for the bigger crowd and there are plenty of bargains around, like the Vincent Careme Vouvray Le Peu Morier.
Savoury, tactile, racy and complex with a penetrating acidity, white pears, nectarines, orange caramel is twirling around a core of wet stones, mushrooms, star anise and bees wax. Give it some time in the glass, or even better, in the decanter and it will reward you greatly. — 16 days ago
Amazing. Excellent. The 1999 opened on New Year's eve 2019.
Lovely aroma of what I like to call violets and perhaps geraniums. Smooth, well balanced. Good color. Good acidity. Cherries, mushrooms, dash or hint of orange peel, bacon and something like fish.
Incredible wine. — 24 days ago
Better than expected. Last years vintage drank really young. Too cherry and light. This was more full bodied and had some depth. Would have been good aged longer too. Same trend for all the 2017 vintage. — 4 days ago
