Great acidity. Needed some air to show nicely, and could use some more aging.

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.

Absolutely beautiful wine. Waxy fruits. Honey. Peach, pear and some melon. Gorgeous acidity balancing the sweetness.

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.

Last had one of these about 3 years ago so thought I'd check in again. Fabulous, effusive nose of crushed rock, mango, orchard fruits and tart apple skin. With air, some honey too. Palate has (literally) mouthwatering acidity and characteristic woolly chenin notes. Lovely precision. A slight broadening on the finish that indicates a minor evolution since the last time I tasted this. Fabulous wine. I served it slightly colder than cellar temp. Great match with tomatillo salsa.

Popped and poured. Stone fruit aroma. Rich flavors of kumquat, petrol, slight sweetness, balanced by intense tartness. Beeswax in the finish. Comes across as quite young. Mutable flavors, some complexity, firm backbone. Drinking well now, will most likely get even better.

Very good wine, the archetype of Montlouis Chenin blanc. Good balance and energy, especially given the wine's substantial RS. Stone fruit, wool, honey and lanolin - classic aromas and favors. Lovely version of this wine, and has the acidity and balance enough so that it seems like it will age very well.

Popped and poured. Light gold colour in the glass, with a moderate sized bead. On the nose, baked apple, lemon zest, smoke, flint, baking spice, brioche, wet hay and perhaps a touch of wood poking out. On the palate, this is not as round as I was expecting from the rather luxurious nose, but still has quite a nice texture. Very brisk, medium plus acids, with low-ish apparent dosage. This finishes moderate with tastes of baked apple, citrus zest, spice, mineral, smoke and yeast. This was quite nice and certainly punches above it's price point for me.

Year 2 - Super Tasting 5 of 5 - Greg does Loire (Greg's House - Kitchener, ON): Golden colour....nose is quite feral with lots of flint, lemon, wool and straw notes.
The palate is really varietally correct....this can only be chenin blanc....lemon, mineral, flint, wet wool, salted lemon and stinky cheese.
The finish is medium.

Absolutely superb. Its fruit is lean and citric, putting the focus squarely on the crackling, tactile minerality that basically coats your palate in chalk, leaving you thirsting for another sip. Puts mouth-watering refreshment in a complex, compelling package.

For Drink Chenin Day 2015. Very nice, still somewhat youthful but also gaining a bit of complexity. Wish I had more.

Well balanced. Sweet but not too sweet, with a little dryness. Honey, apricots. Acid but not too much, with a little bite at the end.

Seemed to lack the usual acid of other vintages? Good fruit but lacking; zip, concentration and intensity. Disappointed. This is usually a sure thing.
