Vintage 2015 / vieilles vignes vines from #cheninblanc on schist. Amazing smell. Pear, apricot, tropical fruit. And green spices: coriander, hint of parsley. Also an impression of honey. Good acidity. Well balanced. Good effort of Agnès and René Mosse. From #anjou but #vindefrance. Partnered it with red gurnard and a tomatosauce, then with cheeses.

Great acidity, but very round and textural on the palette. Savory. Bruised apples and Anjou pears. Hints of camomile and great minerality. No RS.

Vintage 2015 - Bonnes Blanches is the 'lieu dit' where the vines grow. 50 years old. Grown on 'schist'. Way too young now but very promising. #anjou #cheninblanc

Holy crap. This is fantastic. Bringing the funk from Chenin, but clean and crisp at the same time. Crazy good.

Thirst clenching Chenin. Not too much residual sugar and spectacular acidity. More please.

2011. Upon opening the nose is dominated by a strange, uncanny cigar tobacco aroma. This blows off somewhat relatively quickly to morph into a styrofoam mineral and honeyed pear, tarte tatin and graphite aromas. The herbaceousness is really pronounced to my palate; I wonder if it is perhaps stems in this vintage? The 2012 Anjou was much more alluring. This is nothing at all like the 07 tasted in 2011.
