Succulent white flower nose. Crisp, with notes of honey and lemon zest. Delicious!

Bigger and richer than I would have expected. Not as acid driven as other Loire Chenins I've had. A unique rendition.

Pretty fantastic even though it’s clearly on its last legs. Has that rich, oxidized, nutty thing going on but still tons of acid. Time to hurry up and drink the rest.

Dense and powerful, comparable in my experience only to Musar Blanc. Could probably use another 5+ years in the cellar.

Strong florals - perhaps peach/apricot blossoms, honeysuckle... Bruised Bosc pear/yellow apple. Lemon zest. Potential lees contact. Slight minerality.
