2010 Chappellet Chenin Blanc

Community Tasting Note


85 Points

Sunday, March 18, 2012 - Nose: Fresh cut pears, white flowers, ripe green apples, apricots, gravelly minerals. Light and airy with soft, round white fruits. Palate: Chiseled white fruits, honeysuckle, bright acidity on the attack. Oak spice checks in on the mid-palate, along with some hints of grass as well as astringency. Apricots and pears linger on the finish. Starts off delicate on the palate then builds in intensity. Tasty but the overall flavor profile is a little confusing - bouncing from Nahe riesling to Alsace gewurz then back to a nondescript chenin blanc profile.
