No way is this Chenin blanc people! It's delicious cider with a mineral edge i.e. Microbial nonwine...drink right when you open and with a chill or vomit may ensue. Chenin heaven if your agnostic

Label fell off... Herbal, aromatic, grippy, toothy, zesty bright life Chenin. Best expression of the grape from one of my all time faves. Love Benoit.

New Chenin grower to me. Steely and alive with a touch of honey.

This was the white. Bit dull, sherryish. Not had it before so possibly a bad bottle.
