Drinking lean and pretty today. Not as complex as the last bottle but direct and pure pleasure. Very honeyed, pear and spice with hints of minerality. Yum yum yum yum yum.

Lacking a little acid on the finish, but I always enjoy Dom. du Closel. Wanted pickled okra with this.

Rich nose, a bit smoky at first. Good acidity, but I would swear this is a touch sweet.

This wine had both intensity and a feathery lightness-two intermingled qualities that make Savennieres such a singular and unique wine.

Love this amazing value Chenin Blanc. Crisp and full of flavor: green apple, lime zest, white flowers. Generous fruit but balanced with the bright acidity. I didn't want to share.

This is your summer white, come and get the Chenin! Lime citrus, chalk, stone minerality, great interplay of fruit and acidity, keeps you guessing which is more apparent.

As cold as it is outside this is what I was craving, a white wine that is perhaps my favorite outside white Burgundy and Champagne. Nervy, steely, lime and wet granite; dry clean and snappy acidity. #crisp #savvy #cheninblanc
