Les Grives Soûles Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2015

And now it’s time for my semi-annual attempt to show respect to dry Chenin Blanc. I cannot really remember actually enjoying a dry Chenin Blanc in my lifetime of drinking, but I do respect it. This one’s very respectable. Loads of bruised orchard fruit on the nose. The barest hint of an oxidative note. Lots of wet limestone. Intensely mineral and sour in the mouth. Powerful acids. End of the finish leaves a faintly nutty, fino sherryish taste. Intellectually interesting to me, but it’s just not my thing. — 9 hours ago

Agree on the grape not that interesting even the ones with skin contact disappoint.

Nose: honey, lemon candy, ripe bananas, tropical fruit. White flowers. Yellow bell peppers. Lanolin.

100% Chenin Blanc. The more time it spent open, the better the taste. Time allowed this wine to better reflect its true characteristics: round, off-dry & a touch of sweetness. Cheers🍷 — 6 days ago

Outstanding. 2016 vintage. So many developed flavors that I wouldn't expect to get for a couple years more down the road. — 4 days ago

Vouvray Sec Chenin Blanc 2018

Har förvisso druckit godare chenins från Loire men en fin försommardag som denna kan man inte klaga på frukterna i denna. Småpartierna. Panache. — 10 days ago

Clos du Bourg Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Sea shells and ocean mist, creamed peaches with nice acid in the very back of the palate. Light weight and low ABV make for a wonderful summer wine. — 12 days ago

Vignoble des Augustins Silex Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2016

This might be my favorite white. The minerality and complexity appeals to me.
Sharing with 2 great friends with a fresh seafood salad from Anthony’s restaurant in Haddon Heights, NJ.
