Translucent pink; pleasant apricot/melon nose; med acidity lighter weight distinctly tangy and saline; not quite as much verve as the 2012 version.

Four years since my last taste of this bottle, I'd hope there would be more development. Though I'm not not complaining, as this wine is still very fresh. Familiar profile of yellow fruits with floral and tea-like notes carried nicely by a wave of mouthwatering salinity. This dry, well balanced white has plenty of zip making it a great accompaniment to summer dinner fare. At this point, doesn't seem like it's going to evolve into anything earth shattering, but I like what it has to offer and happy to have one more in the cellar to check on in another 4 years.

Bursting nose of honey, almond, citrus. Consistent, elegant palate. Fuller bodied but not heavy. Very good.

Lovely mineral aromas.

Palate is a surprise, so luscious! Rather fabulous, yet I found that my affection for it did wane after a couple of glasses. Serve cold, and drink now for a wonderful experience that captures the richness of 2009 in the Loire.

13.5%. Sealed with cork.

Nose: The nose has a fresh cleaned linen quality to it with green apples, peach, pears, a touch of honey.

Taste: Medium bodied with medium acdidity. The feel is plush and fatter with a tinge of sweetness along with green apples, lanolin, green apples, and some honey notes.

Overall: This could use a slight bit more acidity. This is very good Chenin Blanc, but it lacks another level.

Robe de couleur dorée ambrée foncée. Beau nez complexe sur l'ananas, brioche, miel, boisé, cire, minéral et pétrole. Vin avec une bonne acidité et contrairement a la sensation au nez d'un demi-sec, le vin est sec. Autres les aromes retrouvés au nez, on retrouve celui de la banane.. Proche d'un chardonnay rond. Avec les années, le vin a perdu un peu en puissance, mais a gagné en complexité.

Medium gold color, floral nose with some citrus notes and a bit of yeast. Off-dry, tropical flavors with good acidity cutting through the sweetness. Long, smooth finish. Really enjoying these Chenin Blancs from Chidaine, especially for the price paid.

Straw colored with a nose bursting with peach, lime, honey, and caramel. Palate is a wonderful balance of vibrant citrus (lemon) against the residual sugar (honey/caramel), and leads to a long finish.

Vibrant golden color. Bursting tropical fruit nose, gorgeous fruit on the palate followed by zesty acidity and honey/caramel notes.

This was...odd. On first opening, it had a bit of a musty / advanced smell. That did blow off, and it did end up developing the lemony / mineral laden profile that I love. However, it was a little too far on the lemony side for me, and I didn't love this as much as previous bottles.

Beautiful weight, great volume and good length. Loosing its primal energy and esprit, but still a lot going on. The wine is opening up with air, deepening great lemon zest and citrusy juice with mild sweet spices. Quite intense and long with deep warm energy.

Perfect fair for CR Salmon and risotto. Apple cider, quince, gravel, mead, and chalk on the nose and palate with a light layer of wool over the top of all. In a great place but has some life left. Sweet, savory, and salty all at once.

Loire Valley Masterclass and Tasting: Baked apple, mineral and ginger. Palate just shows moderate sweetness, with the fruit richness also playing a part. Good length to it.

Loire Valley Masterclass and Tasting: Quite intense nose with smoke, ash, nuttiness and apple. Can taste the residual sugar on the palate but it is well integrated. Mouthfilling weight to the fruit. Has interest on the nose and is tasty to drink with that residual sugar, so plenty to like here.

This is coming along quite nicely. Giant, exuberant wood spiced, honeyed applesauce and pear skin; if only it didn't finish a touch hot. Still: very, very good!

C's first comment was 'tart banana' which made me laugh. I wasn't picking up the banana but certainly some other tart tropical fruits and it has nice minerality to it... yet just a touch of creaminess to round it out.

In a good place right now. Took an hour or so to get going. When it did, it showed a much better than Bouchet bottlings I'd had in the past - seemed to have more weight and seriousness to it. Very nice.

This was nice, with ripe golden fruit and just enough sweetness to add a little fullness to the palate. Fresh but note austere. Would be a nice addition to many seafood dishes.

Golden yellow. Lots going on aromatically, but all good with strong sense of ripening fruit and stones. Medium plus weight on palate with great balance of fruit and acidity (almost mesmerizing). Complex flavors and just great with a range of foods.
