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.

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 — a year 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 — 9 months ago

Domaine de la Roche Moreau

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’ — a year ago

Domaine Fabrice Gasnier

Le coteau de Sonnay Chinon Chenin Blanc 2012

Why you don’t even bother opening Chinon Blanc until it’s had a few years in the bottle. What was simple, raw and mean in its youth is now becoming a fresh, focused and pure expression of bone dry Chenin. Fantastic. #gasnier #cheninblanc #chinon — 2 years ago

Montlouis Moelleux Chenin Blanc 1990

Vintage 1990 / Yves died in 2008, he is the father of François. Apricot and honey in smell. The smell of this #cheninblanc is not 100% correct 🤨 but gets much better with aeration. The taste is allright though, with impressions of honey, Turkish fruit, pears, well balanced between sweetness and vivid acidity. Colour has a old golden shine. Partnered it with an apple from the oven. With some butter and sugar. Simple, delicious. — 2 years ago
