Community Tasting Notes 2

    December 26, 2020 - Had this for christmas dinner, "asiatisk ribbe", asian style porkribs. Double decanted it a hour or so before dinner. I wanted the residual sugar to match up with the food, and i hoped this Chenin effort with its 16 gr. could do the tricks, (a bit less typically compared to a spatelse or kabinett though) but unfortunatly it came across as weird and unsettled.

    Color was deep (morning urine). On the nose it had some nice varm yellow apple, but after that it was kind of tucked in a wool blanket, and the alcohol 14,5% went in the way of other potential nuances.

    My main impression was that it had to much heat on it, 2018 beeing a warm vintage of course, step into the era of climate changes... Or perhaps the bottle was of ( I have read of some problem with preox but are not experient enough to know, maybe I also gave it too much air). I have bought quite a few of the Chidaine in the 2018 vintage, so I hope it was just my bad, and that it is just way to early for it to get into a coherent state.

    July 9, 2020 - Clear yellow colour. Nose is rich, fruity, generous and somewhat mineral, with notes of citrus, white peaches, white flowers and a touch of wet gravel and honey. Mouthfeel is rich, generous, full bodied, with a touch of residual sugar (fact check says 16 g/l), with fresh acidity, nice minerality and notes of citrus, white peaches, honey and a touch of wool and wet gravel.

    Beautiful wine, still very elegant with this touch of residual sugar, perfect match to today's hot and spicy vindaloo chicken.
