Lemon, sweet Meyer lemon, lemon cake, almond paste, minerals upon minerals, so clean and exuberant. Fresh and lively with intense lemon and lime fruit and some terrific green apple. Juicy and so clean. So much acid and grip. Balanced and long. Finishes salty.

Holy Chenin! Chenin in 2015 in Loire is unreal. Maybe best young vintage since 2002. This is ridiculous. Awesome Riesling crystalline quality nose of lemon peel, minerals, fresh cut almonds, some wet hay. Palate is even more Riesling-esque. Stunning palate. Just perfect. Balance is extraordinary as is the crystalline quality. So mineral, long and juicy with a sense of serious underlying material and density. Stunning sappy and authoritative flavors command your attention on the finish. The finish lasts for minutes. I can't believe how stunning this is.

Lovely acidity, endless finish, nutty citrusy balanced beauty. Not to be shared with a cheap date, but with a keeper.
