Deep yellow. Nose has straightforward aromas of honey and orchard fruit. But this is very precise on the palate, a core of snaking acidity amid the apple and pear notes, and a long finish that’s a balance of fruit and minerality. Blended from 10 to 50 year old vines. (Jason Wilson, Vinous, July 2020)

Gorgeous purity and balance of acid/sugar interplay. Sl. redux upon opening; flint and salumi rind. Aired out to underripe peach, asian pear, citrus blossom, tea leaf, flint and honey. Leesy undertones of cheese rind throughout. A “riper” Jasnieres while maintaining plenty of delicacy

Classic Loire Chenin aromatics in all dimensions. RS accentuates the honey & apricot character in an off dry style that creates interesting tension between fruit, acid and texture. The finish surprises with slightly bitter lemon pith, leaving a very phenolic impression of a wine that is otherwise very rich and opulent.

I'm pretty sure if I went to the Loire I might never leave.

Structure, frame and even with 4 years of age is still structured enough to go the distance for another ten. Creamy mouth feel with discreet notes of honey and biscuit. Smashing.
