Domaine Huet

Brut Pétillant Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2010

New year's day bubbles, and beautiful too at roughly a decade old. Poached pear, ginger, cheese rind and crushed rocks. Still persistent, fine bead. Delicious. #cheninagins🍐⛏️🤤 — a year ago

Nice little entry point to this category for a steal. Well balanced and sure to improve over the next couple years. Good one K&L. #cheninagins — 3 years ago

Baudoin Chenin Blanc 2014

Mouthwatering, wooly young Chenin with crazy minerality. But too young at the moment. Gotta sacrifice some though, yeah? Love Chidaine. #vinfanticide #cheninagins — 2 years ago

Pétillant Brut Vouvray Chenin Blanc

Oh Chenin. Why are you so delicious and versatile? Tiny, little prickly bubbles. Bruised apple, chervil, limestone. #cheninagins — 2 years ago

Le Rocher des Violettes (Xavier Weisskopf)

Les Borderies Chenin Blanc 2014

Sometimes you just gotta open 'em young. This was super complex and on the drier side of demi-sec. Crushed it with curry. #cheninagins — 3 years ago

Château Soucherie

Clos des Perrieres Savennières Chenin Blanc 2012

Young Savennières that is very open and forward. No lack of Chenin funkiness or the schistose feel of this appellation, just unexpectedly approachable. In a good way. #cheninagins — 4 years ago

Domaine du Petit Clocher

Anjou Chenin Blanc 2016

Good value but not deeply Chenin. Fresh and fruit forward, hint of RS. Pretty big, ripe style. Worked nicely with a spicy peanut stew. Solid weeknight quaffer. #cheninagins — 2 years ago

Sélection de Grains Nobles Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 2000

This was just a touch over the hill, to my surprise. However it was still a lovely, nutty / tawny take on botrytized Chenin with good complexity & food-friendliness. Almost drank like PX. #cheninagins — 2 years ago
