⚡️⚡️⚡️ white tea, pear, lemon/grapefruit, stones. Laser beam down the palate, racy and tense, unyielding since LBT. Day: 2 there we go, better development of fruit, lime blossom, honey, more length.

Reminiscent of white Burgundy in its precision and breadth. Leads you into thinking it will be over the top with the lush heady and tropical notes. Subtle oak that I love on Chenin that bring out almost a lemon curd/toasty note. Palate is bursting with acid, much more citrus, quince, pear, and crushed rock on the palate with a lingering finish. This is very complex, wound, and offers a little something different with every sip. Arguably one of the best CB I've had.

Everything you want in a chenin. Cut grass, big acid and mineral body, but also with a slight reductive note for depth. Drank it with a pear/ham/shallot tarte salee and lentil salad, felt French AF.

Delicious chenin blanc. Green apple and peach notes married with lovely acidity and minerality. Honeyed, floral nose.

Found this gem at Enfin du Vin, a Cave/wine bar in Candes-Saint-Martin for 19€. Couldn't pass it up.

Everything you want in a Saumur. Ready to rock but I could see this giving over a longer haul
