So much like the first bottle! This is awesome. Lanolin, waxed citrus peel, stone fruits, and a juicy plump swallow. DeLicious!!

This developed very nicely over the course of several nights. Initially, very juicy ripe red apple, honey and acidity. Youthful. After a few days, there is more tropical fruit, subtlely and refreshing sweetness. I would recommend holding these for several years. That youthful exuberance is perfectly good and the wine is very good. However, it seemed to take on complexity and sophistication over the several days it was open. This should age well for decades.

Nice nose with a little fun dip. Fun palate with yellow fruits and some candy notes. Fun sipper.

Du parfum, de l'harmonie et un certain éclat, c'est un vin bâti en longueur aux saveurs bien persistantes. Un vin de séduction, qui m'a beaucoup plu! 90-91+

This is drinking really well at the moment. No oxidation whatsoever. Fresh, crisp and delightful. Enjoyed with snapper tacos.

As this warmed it was great with steamed fish Chinese style. Maybe prior bottles were too cold ?

Some Wines from a Spring Trip to France; 4/4/2015-4/11/2015 (Paris and Burgundy): Light yellow. Pear and a whiff of smokiness. A bit lighter weight for Chenin Blanc but still very textural. Dry but not quite as bracing as it was several years ago. Really coming into form nicely.

MASTER ESAGONALE FRANCIA; 1/14/2015-7/30/2015 (HOTEL WESTIN PALACE MILANO): Degustato alla cieca. Cozze fresche annegate in una resina affumicata. Albicocche candite e Gran Marnier.
In bocca è untuoso e penetrante, ma raffinatissimo e vibrante. Esuberante e sottile al tempo stesso. Rarefazione aerea della componente zuccherina che sembra polverizzata e distribuita in ogni parte del palato. Eleganza sopraffina delle controparti amare, da scoprire e sviscerare a poco a poco. Incarna perfettamente il binomio che distingue i più grandi vini dolci del mondo: La capacità di essere concentrato, ma scorrevole e dissetante allo stesso tempo.
Meraviglioso e con decenni di vita davanti

Love the super trad label
very distinctive nose - nutty, toasty (not oak) a little oxidised perhaps but colour is still very pale
very dry initially, masses of acidity not a lot of fruit and then hugely creamy, nutty and long
Very long
Unusual wine, won't be for everyone but I really like it
Tastes old-fashioned but it's not funky, everything is very controlled and classical.
I can see this ageing for decades.
It's not cheap £22

Intense, complex funky chenin nose - cheese rind and minerals; quite earthy, dried rind/honey on the palate. Very particular style.

69 g/l de sucre résiduel

Un vin d’abricots confits et de miel, avec une touche d’épices. Très rond, onctueux. Pour l’instant me semble peu complexe mais c’est très tôt pour porter un jugement sur un vin de longue garde. Nous avons préféré le demi-sec (mais millésime de 2 ans plus vieux pour le demi-sec). À racheter mais à oublier en cave plusieurs années. Ma première expérience avec un chenin moelleux toutefois donc je ne peux pas comparer à d’autres millésimes du même genre de vin.

35 g/l de sucre résiduel (habituellement 15-20 g/l, mais ça dépend du climat du millésime - 2009 était un millésime solaire)

Arômes de pommes et de poires confites, belle onctuosité, un bel équilibre entre le sucre et l’acidité. Très bon avec le cheddar fort mais surtout avec le bloc de foie gras. Une belle longueur. Excellent rapport qualité-prix.

3/11/2015 - Beerzebub Likes this wine: NR

P&p; closed and seemingly austere at first, takes 15 minutes to start opening up, and 40+ minutes to really get going - aromas of white peach, lemon/lime, honey, and light sweaty/woolly funk. On the palate it's quite tart and lemony/limey, with cool juicy peach/nectarine, light honey, and a strong current of saline and chalky/stony minerality. High acidity. Fully dry. Moderately silky body. Fairly long, saline, mineral finish. Once it has some air, this is quite nice.

Day 2 (saved in a half bottle) - somewhat richer and fuller, while still bright, citrusy and mineral; drinking well. Guessing this has a long life ahead of it.

Pas du tout en phase avec les notes de dégustation précédentes : il s'agit d'un superbe vin, extrêmement bien équilibré entre l'acidité et la rondeur, une excellente définition, arômes de chenin de Loire très précis. Une très belle bouteille à racheter d'urgence !

Opened one hour in advance. Honey and wool aroma with a slight musty tinge. Straightforward flavors of white fruit and petrol. Lemon and minerals in the finish, with that musty component fading in and out of the background.

Balanced, some depth, nice flavors, not complex. The mustiness referenced is odd, but not unpleasant. Obviously not a great (or even good) year. Still, a chance to drink a modest Vouvray with some age on it at an equally modest price.

Dry, high-acid, rock juice. Lime, lime zest, some underripe apple, quinine and a finish that makes you feel like you're sucking on a stone. Not a smooth stone, a porous, craggly one. Really enjoyed this.

Le vin ne s'est pas bien présenté par rapport à la dégustation au domaine en 2014, peu expressif, amertume et sucre se battant au palais. Acidité bien vaillante face au sucre résiduel, il faut faire confiance à cette cuvée pour resurgir dans un moment.

The wine is clear and bright with a pale lemon colour and presence of many small bubbles.

The nose is clean and developing, showing medium intensity aromas of tropical fruit (pineapple), citrus (lemon peel), green fruit (green apple), hints of herbaceous notes (fresh grass) and hints of yeast (marzipan).

The wine is off-dry in the mouth with a medium acidity. It has a medium alcohol and a medium(+) body with a creamy mousse. It has medium(+) intensity flavours of tropical fruit (pineapple), citrus (lemon peel), green fruit (green apple), hints of herbaceous notes (fresh grass) and hints of yeast (marzipan). The finish is medium, and showing some bitterness.

It is a good quality wine. It has concentrated flavours and it shows well the typicity of a Chenin Blanc sparkling through the herbaceous notes and rather rustic character. However it lacks some complexity and the finish could be longer.

Drink now, not intended for ageing. The wine will lose its fizz without developing any interesting flavours.

Shows a lot of funky, bitter rot character, and there's not enough fruit left to balance the acidity. Adds an offputting dishwater character with air. Did not finish my glass.
