Well, this just keeps getting better, which is a shame because there will never be any more. Astonishing acidity that comes without sacrificing weight or extraction. Wooly/cirtus/honey/laserbeam. A cattle prod to my Chenin pleasure center.

Unfortunately a thing of the past. Lovely wine, vibrant and full at 10 years young. Powerful, structured Chenin.

Long and mineral driven. Tons of apricot and and toasted nuts. Sadly very few of these still exist.

Mmm this is great Chenin! 2007 was the last bottling that Stephane saw through bottling, sadly before passing away.

quince/ underripe pear, extremely saline, almost ocean water. Horseradish. Soft tannins across the palate with acid concentrated at the front quarter of the tongue, transferred to the back/tonsils with air. Confit lemon, verbena.
