2016 Pascal Janvier Jasnières Chenin Blanc
Pounded down by the crew but also appreciated for its crisp minerality and fresh textures.

Deep gold color ... Zachy auction lunch celebrating an office move (and bought from Zachy).

A girl who happened to be at my table was born in 1992 so shared with her and her friends.

Deep gold. Aromas of white flowers and apples in storage. Minerality. Very well balanced. long finish. Some vanilla notes from oak. slight caramel flavors.

Still thick and fruity per the vintage. This is a mouthful with great balance. I had a little trouble with the cork breaking off. I never can understand why ports have such cheesy corks when cork comes from Portugal. This is drinking nicely now with no hard edges, but will seemingly last longer than I will.

Beautiful gold color, bubbles are lively and effervescent. Aromas are biscuit with lots of autolysis. Very smooth mousse, tangy med+ acidity and long length with citrus.
