100% Chenin from Chinon. Linden blossom and lanolin nose. Very vibrant on the palate - pear, golden delicious, and great acid. Excellent, lengthy finish. Chenin accounts for only about 4% of the plantings in Chinon. This wine makes me wish that number was far higher.

Fun to gulp even if finishing a bit simple.

Fatter and richer than previous bottles. It's got gobs of ripe, golden orchard fruits that somebody tossed with a handful of dried porcini, but there's this cleansing lemon-oil acidity. Sneaky good

Took a while in the decanter to be anything but a screaming lightning bolt of acidity. Eventually showed some nice stone fruit, a touch of woolly funk and citrus twang. A little time in the bottle will help.

Generous nose with bees wax and granny smith apples - almost smells oily. Baked apples on the palate with the bees wax coming through. Tight, racy acid would make me think this one needs some serious time - maybe 15 years?
