    May 3, 2019 - Stunning wine that improved over 12 hours. textural, with fantastic tannin structure, honey, mineral amber and sandalwood. none of the frivolous golden raisins or white blossoms of vouvray, this is powerful chenin, in the hands of a master

    November 3, 2017 - Clear, pale gold in colour.
    Clean nose, pronounced aromas of baked yellow orchard fruits (apple, pear, quince), oak (vanilla, smoke), wet wool, honey, walnuts. The wine is fully developed.
    The palate is dry with high acidity, medium (+) alcohol (14%), full body, pronounced flavours similar to the nose, with quince dominating, medium (+) finish.
    The wine is very good quality, but I suspect will be too much an oxidative style for many palates. It is fully developed and should be drunk now, it is not suitable for further ageing. Personally I love this but it is probably an acquired taste. This is why I've marked it down a bit compared to other vintages I've had of this wine.

    July 2, 2016 - Unfortunately, it's over the hill. Good honey but very strong oxidation. Aroma aldehydes

    December 16, 2013 - I have a personal crush on this wine as it’s all umami-like in my mouth. Little hot on the nose but outstanding elements of Meyer lemon, under-ripe honeydew, tart cumquat and screams of wet wool and lanolin. Bruised apple and bruised pear, honey and I love that combination with the wet wool from chenin blanc. Touch of roundness on the finish (slightly sweet – maybe a little residual sugar) but still a very much 100% dry wine. Drank this along side Dijon roasted chicken and acid profile (high) cut right through. Delicious. Will find more of this.

    February 10, 2013 - Quite nice. Bright sweet & sour kumquat meets some deftly integrated custardy oak. Good intensity of flavor. Richly textured but also bright and refreshing. Just barely off dry, with excellent acidity. Some salinity, and a savory element. Good depth and complexity, good length, tasty stuff.

    (Eric Morgat Savennières L'Enclos) A barrel sample, to be bottled in July 2011. A lovely polished style here, although there is an obvious oak influence at this stage, but a very pure and harmonious sense to it. I find notes of honey and oaky fennel alongside the reserved, rather golden fruits. The same character comes through on the palate, which shows some overt and rather domineering oak at present, but with a characteristic spice coming from behind. There is nice acidity at its core, and a slightly dried-fruit character, and a good grippy finish. Difficult to judge at this primary stage, when Morgat wines are always smothered in oak, but these wines have a habit of coming good.
