Château Yvonne Saumur Chenin Blanc 2016

$55.99

Blushed apples, pomaceous and crisp, with crunchy bosc pears and the smoked skins of dewy green & golden orchard fruits. On the second sniff, crushed rocks spritzed with kumquat and pushed into quince; the smell of honeysuckles after a spring shower, oozing drops of honey-like nectar. The scent of this Saumur Blanc is like a drug melting the world around me into a haze. This wine is like the love child of a great Meursault and Dry Vouvray.Addicted already, pressed perennials preserved in white truffle oil make their presence clear, leaving a trail of crystallized salts and the salinity of a western Atlantic breeze on the palate. The finish is endless, never leaving me bare. As it begins to fade it morphs, redefining its transformation sip after sip, layer upon layer unveiling itself as the wine evolves. The wine is a chameleon, shaded and complex... the type of substance one should not live life without!

Lovely pure nose, almonds, smells the acid, pear, ripe but also hugely mineral, juicy, high acid and refined. Salty and very complex finish. Huge huge acid.

Restaurant purchase at FIG in Charleston. Incredible depth and richness while still remaining light and zippy.
