Chenin Blanc Viognier 2020

One of my favorite whites from #nice Winery. Stone fruit, apple / pear and white floral nose as expected from #cheninblanc #viognier blend. Fleshy white peach palate, mouthwatering green apple tartness, nectarious mouthfeel. — a month ago

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. — 2 years ago

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.

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1981

Last of the 1981 bottles I bought for my dear wife’s birthday and I believe this was the best. The cork was in incredible condition, looked only a few years old - Ah So made easy work of it. After allowing it to warm a bit - caramel apple, some barnyard funk on the nose, plus an under layer of fresh green apple. Palate is beautifully balanced, no sign of fatigue at all - this #coteauxdulayon #cheninblanc could coast for ages it seems. Caramel and honey notes, fleshy texture, some lemon, piercing acidity cutting through that sweetness, and more fresh green apple underlaying the baked notes. This was a nice counterpoint to the Sauternes we had closer to her actual birthday and a compelling alternative. — 8 months ago

Toichais lasts forever! We celebrated my parents’ 50th anniversary with a 1959 and it was as good as new! Better even!

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

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 — 3 years ago

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 year ago

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.
