Great wine. Terrific purity, nutty, iodine, hazelnuts, almonds, sickness, hint of wax, ocean spray, sick nose. Palate is so dense and intense. Pure and deep. Textured and dense. Energy up the wazoo. Stunning length. Wow.

it’s like Grand Cru Chablis except it’s Chenin. Smells like super great Dauvissat initially. Green Apple and tons of mineral. One of those wines that smells stuffed to the gills just by the nose, but you know it is holding out. Almost some green pea as well. No wax. No almonds. Clean nuts if that makes sense. This is new wavey Chenin like Guiberteau. Palate is just electric but is more Chenin than the nose with its feral fruit energy and vibe but also it has a Rieslingesque cleanliness to it. Dirty Chenin is one of my pet peeves. This is clan as a whistle. Like a cross between Guiberteau and Dauvissat. Dense, chewy, structured and deep. So clean and pure and length that does not quit. What poise and structure. But a lovely finesse and breed as well. This is sappy and dense as can be and one can crunch through the structure. Stunning purity and what a wonderful new expression of Chenin. Saumur is the place.

Лудинг. Айва, немного оксидативный тон, сушеные полевые цветы, комплексный. Чуть нефти. Во рту среднее + тело, хорошая ср+ кислотность, интенсивность и финиш. Очень крутое, но не мое)
