La Jalousie Savennières Chenin Blanc 2020

Quite stony on the nose , green apple , wet wool. On the palate fills out well with more green fruits , apple , pear and quince with a creamy , slightly waxy character to go with the flinty , saline and stony notes . Good balanced acidity and decent , honey tinged finish . Enjoyable now though will age well over the next 10 -15 years or so . — a day ago

A great Wine. Rich, deep lingers forever towards the back of the mouth. Complex at earthy. $32 for 2016 vintage — a month ago

Botrytis, honey, funk. Started off slightly effervescent but that dissipated. Wild wine. — 2 months ago

Moulin Touchais

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1985

My favorite wine. Flavors echoed the apple cider poached pears.

Earthy (wet/ozone post thunderstorm forest floor, button mushroom), burnt caramel, baked pear and apple, sage, agave, wild acid.

Really should’ve waited to open this bottle. Bright, acidic and full of fruit. Really good. Have to buy more and hide them — 2 months ago

L'Insolite Saumur Chenin Blanc 2020

Um… Some might say this is subtle, but I’d say it’s precise. Clean, honey blossom, white tea, peach, Granny Smith apple and amazing acid. Wow. — 2 months ago

Brézé Saumur Chenin Blanc 2017

A subtle, elegant, & lithe Chenin from a master. I’m going to say in a closed phase at year 7. The stuffing is there, & the balance is impeccable. — a month ago

Anjou Chenin Blanc 2021

Pale straw with a particularly vivacious nose. You’re greeted with aromas of umami and wet stones. There’s plenty of floral notes here, along with green apples and a faint touch of vanilla.

Clean, precise, and linear. This is a delicious Chenin Blanc. The key here is the acid that runs throughout. Sharp and contemplative while remaining generous. The palate is fresh and direct with citrus and minerality. Outstanding.
