Opening this is a serious case of infanticide. Hold on for a minimum of two years before popping the cork. Steely notes of chamomile, bruised pear, linen, and chalk. This has Savenniéres overtones and will be relatively long-lived and certainly become more expansive with cellar time.

2007 - at 11 y.o really expansive - edge color turning but not body - a little viscous - honied and peachy. Wow. Wish I had more.

Reminded me of Savennières. Really interesting. The CF is the better QPR though.

On a quiet phase now, less aromatic than 4 months ago - time to lay it down

Richer, more unctuous, than expected. Tightens up with some air. May be more compelling with more bottle age.

Beautiful texture, sort of a slaty peach-juice character, opulent but fresh, it shouldn't be a surprise that a great red wine region makes a great white wine, but I always do feel a tickle of magic to taste the opposite colored variety grown in a traditional wine region

Steel, wet wool, peach put. Saline & industrial. Great 15 year Chenin is pretty awesome.
