April 26, 2014 - 93 Hermoso color dorado; nariz de cera, miel y cítricos. En boca ésta botella tiene nervio y acidez. Por su precio, me parece una verdadera ganga.

July 4, 2013 - Tonight's btl seemed a little more one dimensional than the first 2 but still a nice bone dry white.
June 14, 2013 - Opened and into the glass. Didn't get this as cold as I wanted so we'll chill it down better for dinner. At at midish 60s temp, the wine shows a medium + texture, with apple, nectarine, pear and a zing of lime zest rignt through the core and into the finish. Some chalk, as others mentioned, although it's flattened a bit by the serving temp. Will be real good cooler with some tuna tartare and avocado.
May 19, 2013 - Very similar to the previous bottle but maybe more austere. Very chalky, some pear and green apple. Bone dry, great acidity. Maybe not the most complex wine ever but I just love everything that wine offers. A classic Chenin without excessive and unnecessary fat.
April 28, 2013 - There seems to be some question as to whether this is Chenin or Cabernet Franc - blanc. I don't know the answer but I do enjoy this wine. Pretty and doesn't have subtle sweetness of many Chenins I've had from Loirie. Still youthfully tight but more open than my first btl last year.
February 5, 2013 - Chenin? I did not know that.
November 3, 2012 - Pale gold color. Fresh floral nose. Zingy acidity on the palate catches your immediate attention. Fortunately this is also packed with intense tart citrus flavors of green apple and grapefruit along with a pronouced minerality. This is no pussy wine for newbies and probably will show best with food. Definitely on the dryer, less sweet side of Chenin styles. I like!
June 4, 2012 - I love this wine's affirmed minerality, as well as its textbook chenin nose and palate. On the last bottle, I thought the acidity was a little off the charts, which is not a problem I usually have, but on this occasion it masked some of the chenin character. Not particularly long or profound, but always enough going on to keep this interesting. Quite lovely.
May 16, 2012 - 90 Magnífico vino. colora amarillo pálido, verdoso. Nariz fragante, anisados, fruta madura, piña, plátanos. En boca tiene mucho volúmen, muy buena acidez, es larguísimo y equilibrado, con un final balsámico y un poco amargo. Importante vino.
