Straightforward. Pleasant. Precise. Well made. But didn't blow me away. Good but not enough to bring me back.

Lovely chenin blanc with pretty floral notes along with cleansing minerality. Medium body and delightful with enough acidity to match well with food

Lovely wine and a real surprise for many drinkers who associate Chinon with red wine. This very slightly off dry chenin blanc is beautifully perfumed with a faint aroma of honey and white flowers. The trick to enjoying this wine is to not serve it ice cold - treat it like a fine white Burgundy and the acidity balances the beautiful fruit and aroma. Lovely wine. Elegant length

Straightforward and delicious Chinon blanc. Round, lush, and not without that searing 2013 acidity. New producer to me and for this price I'm definitely a fan.
