What a high quality Chenin. It is dry, complex and utterly delightful. One of the top 5 or so Loire wines I had in 2015 and brought direct from balanced wine selections.... Awesome stuff

Delicious meaty & honeyed pear, a touch of oxidation, with just enough of crispy acidity to keep it balanced, although I could use just a little more...
