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 months ago

Domaine Ricard

Chenonceaux Tasciaca Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Wow! Mango, guava, coconut, pea shoot, galangal, autolysis. White Bordeaux-like density & texture. Easily will go 2-3 more years in a cool cellar. #touraine #sauvignonblanc #loirevalley — a year ago

Love those #loirevalley SBs - nice contrast in style compared to the NZ less-ripe SBs, though I enjoy both regions.

Good concentration. From acid and tannins. Medium complexity. Fine length. Needs food! #chinon #loirevalley #cabernetfranc #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago

Famille Bougrier (Domaines Bougrier)

Cuvée Spéciale Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

I adore #loirevalley #sauvignonblanc . Here’s a typically French SB with soft grassy and tart citrus on the nose, hint of tropical fruit in your mouth, refreshing acidity. — 4 months ago

Château Bellerive

Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru Moelleux Chenin Blanc 2003

Deep, amber colour. Clean and pronounced aromas of stewed apricot, caramel, fig, linden flower and golden raisin. Palette follows with raisins, a subtle nuttiness with a superb balance of sugar and acid. Would be fantastic if paired with creme brûlée! #cheninblanc #loirevalley — a year ago
