Château Pierre-Bise

Clos de la Soucherie Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Chenin Blanc 2005

A version 4 years younger that is pure fruit, delicate as the 2001 but maybe less developed, less complex. Nothing wrong with that, though 😸. Apparently the winemaker, Monsieur Papin, is called "the poet of Chenin Blanc" by the revered Andrew Jefford and if he said so my only aim is to look for more Papins to corroborate through a field research. Excellent! #cheninblanc #loire #botrytis #sweetwine #noblerot #anjou #saumur #beaulieu — 3 years ago

Château Pierre-Bise

Clos de la Soucherie Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Chenin Blanc 2001

A mildly amber colour that makes me think of shrivelled grapes covered in mold. Too ethereal (light) to be a sweet wine, therefore I'd have it as an aperitif too. Apricots and honey and orange marmalade and walnuts and marzipan, tangy aftertaste. Not a cultural milestone like a Sauternes or a Tokaji but excellent in its own league. #cheninlikeadiamond #cheninblanc #loire #botrytis #sweetwine #noblerot #anjou #saumur #beaulieu — 3 years ago

At first I was skeptical about a wine from #jurançon costing so much (independently of who made it) but I really must say that it's spectacular and is a world class dessert/#sweetwine #didierdagueneau — 4 years ago

6 Puttonyos Tokaji Aszú Furmint Blend 2002

Orange peel, honey, blossom flowers, delicious, fragrant, out-worldly, moving towards orange confiture, marzipan, apricot and dried prunes. Young palate, fresh and rich, honeyed, long aftertaste. THIS IS NUTS!! GO & GET A BOTTLE NOW!!! #tokaji #aszú #botrytis #hungary #sweetwine #noblerot — 3 years ago
