  • fiinty nose, tremendous minerality and hint of citrus. went perfectly with turbot and butter sauce at Les Escargot in Saumur.

  • A very yellow, spicy nose of tangy lemon, dandelion, yeast and vanilla. A lovely, really interesting nose here. On the palate completely dry yet perfectly ripe. Definitely has some tartness, but without being aggressive or out of balance at all. Dominating flavor being really attractive sour lemon, there is also tight minerality, tea and yeast to be found. Good weight, absolutely no baby fat and lipsmackingly high acidity. Not a crowd pleaser, but a seriously delicious, intense wine with personality for acid freaks. Not totally unlike Z-H's basic Riesling, being quite austere in the best possible way.

    2nd day: even better, although took a good while in the glass to open up (the nose was almost mute at first). Truly a great dry Chenin that challenges its drinker, but also rewards. A beautifully crafted wine with personality.

  • 8/10 - Rich and creamy with a lovely vanilla bean nose (and not the cheapo vanilla ice cream or oak-style vanilla, but real good fresh vanilla beans). Otherwise, very clean and linear on the nose. Not too much fruit and very crisp. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

    Drank at Lolla's for L's birthday

  • This is very pretty and clean and a real joy to drink. Stony and some lemon. Will not re-buy at the high $30s price point, though.

  • très peu expressif. Manquant de gras, mais droit dans ses bottes et à attendre.
