Vintage 2013 | Razorsharpe Chenin Blanc with minerality. Not a wine to get acquainted with the grape, it does by no means try to charm you. But for lovers of Chenin Blanc it is top! Nice acidity. Pure.

If Château de Brézé is reminiscent of Montrachet, Boudignon has the feel of a great Chablis. Downright electric with stellar acidity and flinty minerality, it has tightly packed finger lime, chervil and sea salt aromatics that unfurl magically with a bit of air. This wine loves a good decant.

Slight oxidization on the nose, potent and concentrated on the palate. Needs more time.

Had to take a picture of this in front of an apple tree, it is so pure, like a perfectly fresh picked piece of fruit, cold and covered in dew.

Just there honey and hay with water chestnuts, salinity and lemon and lime. Textured and taut in the palate, finishing long but will certainly get better over time
