A beautifully rounded and fully developed Loire sticky that ain’t so sticky...but just right! Fresh, beautifully balanced exotic fruit and a clear beam of acidity, earthy chalk. Soul of a dry white.

Vintage 1991 - very difficult vintage, but great performance of #cheninblanc small nose with impression of Turkish delight, almonds, a taste with a lot of bitters, good balance and enormous long aftertaste - BYOW at restaurant Monarh

Wow!! Golden with great concentration. #botrytis nose with high complexity. A total palate f**k. The appearance of being bone dry with racy acidity, superb tension, and incredible complexity. Long finish. This is a baby at 12 years old. Still tasting amazing after 7 days of being open. #coteauxdulayon #moulintouchais #cheninblanc #loirevalley #ctbucklinwine
