Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc 2020

Food-friendly #stellenbosch estate #cheninblanc - baked apple, honey and soft white flowers on the nose. Delicious bright acidity, steely apple on the tongue. Strong estate offering for the price - paired pretty well with a Manchurian cauliflower and rice dish picking up the tart notes in the sauce and enough verve to complement the Asian spices. ~$13 at Total Wine. — a month ago

Western Cape Chenin Blanc 2019


The nose on this wine is beautiful. It has tropical fruit, green apple, and floral notes. The palate is bright with green apple notes. The acidity makes my mouth water. Fantastic with crab imperial-stuffed salmon.

En Terrasse Anjou White Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 / #cheninblanc needs time to show qualities. Tasted 3,5 year ago and now the wine is going to shine 😉 apricot and peach in smell,good balance. Enormous improvement. Paired with salad and goatcheese. — 2 years ago

White Blend 2018


Delicious. So juicy and nuanced. There’s so much concentration! The barrel fermentation is perfect in my opinion. There’s a little bit of intentional reduction and there are some popcorn aromas as well. On the palate a rich rush of lemon pie, lemon tart, pineapple, and quince fills your mouth. #cheninblanc #verdelho #viognier #coastalregion #southafrica 13.5% alcohol and perfect. I hate critics that judge a wine by the alcohol on thelabel. — 6 months ago

Domaine Huet

Vouvray Sec Chenin Blanc 2013

Pic #3. 2013 Domaine Huet, Le Mont, Vouvray Sec. Golden hue with notes of melon, honeydew, cantaloupe, pear, white flowers, and grapefruit on the palate. Well-balanced and complemented the Lake Superior whitefish served in a mussel jus, with guanciale, and Brussels sprouts. Also in this pic is a tortellini enveloping a bite of good thunder cheese, tossed with zucchini agrodolce, baby corn, Swiss chard, and black trumpet mushrooms (which was paired with the Barbera on next pic, 4) #vouvray #cheninblanc #winesofloire #loirevalley #touraine — 2 years ago

Château de Fesles

Chenin Sec La Chapelle Vieilles Vignes 2014

Vintage 2014 / damned... too young. Lots of minerals, but by no means an everyone’s friend. A bit difficult, as dry #cheninblanc can be. If you store this in the cellar, keep it there for a few years. Enjoyable as aperitive now. A bit stubborn, though. // Put half a bottle in the fridge with an anti oxydation stop... now 6 days later the wine shows a bit of its potential with some honey and friendlyness. Plus 0,1 in appreciation — 2 years ago

The nose has apple and yeasty notes. Loveky fruit with mouthwatering acidity to balance. I'm enjoying this sparkler with sushi.

La Forcine Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

This wine does not have much of a nose. The palate tastes of ripe orange flesh with a little acidity and orange pith in the finish. It pairs nicely with sriracha roast chicken.

Quarts de Chaume Chenin Blanc 2014

Vintage 2014 / Festive wine from #cheninblanc #quartsdechaume Sumptuous and rich, botytris and honey. Way too young, but interesting to follow its development. Taste likes nectar, makes me very happy. This AOC is a gem in the cellar, try to find some bottles and store them for special moments. With a homemade ‘Tarte au citron’ — 2 years ago
