    August 30, 2021 - Fairly rich. Maybe some RS or a bit of botrytis, but delicious just the same.

    August 26, 2019 - My final bottle of Bournais. The color on this is becoming pretty gold in tone. Not sure what to make of that but I offer it for those who know more than I do about Chenin as it ages. Yesterday, the wine was squarely about acid, with that acidity overtaking any fruit that was there. My wife and I drank a glass each and then just tossed the bottle into the fridge. Today, the fruit is showing more, pulling together an apple, tart nectarine, lemon and a waxy tone. The acidity then closes the wine with a bitter note. I don't like the balance on this wine, as it's just a little fierce in acid that it just overshadows the fruit. Will retry again tomorrow and hope for better but I am not hoping for much.

    June 16, 2019 - This is spectacular - I generally prefer older chenin but Chidaine really seems to peak here in early middle age. Intense, rich, saturated fruit with equally intense acidity. It’s like a grand cru Chablis from a perfect vintage. Limestone magic.

    June 5, 2019 - Un équilibre idéal entre la minéralité et la rondeur, sans sucre résiduel mais avec un accueil charmeur et une très belle longueur. Auparavant, on est happé par un nez envoûtant, un poil d'anis et d'agrumes, très haut niveau. Parfaitement prêt à boire, ouvert et assagi.
    Un grand blanc, splendide.

    March 30, 2019 - Unfortunately my last bottle. This is drinking well, and should for a while. This was opened last night, and today it is showing slight tropical fruit and some wooly notes. Dry, and medium plus weight. Delicious.
