Château Yvonne Saumur Chenin Blanc

$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!

Past it's prime but still interesting. All wax, no acid.

The best bottle of this vintage I’ve had. Was less wooly and I had no fears of it being too old. Gorgeous kinda toned down gewurz profile. And a very elegant texture.

Love this wine. Electric boogaloo type wine. So much energy. Could power a small house! Nose is high toned meyer lemon, fresh almonds, saline minerals, persian cucumber, swimming pool. Just wow nose. Palate is just electric! ⚡️so much acid and texture. Insane minerality. Pretty much no fruit. Sappy and extracted with a never ending finish. Structured to a T. Wow wine and wonderful. As it airs the nose gets phyllo dough and that takes this over the top!

What a high quality Chenin. It is dry, complex and utterly delightful. One of the top 5 or so Loire wines I had in 2015 and brought direct from balanced wine selections.... Awesome stuff

Good news, chenin lovers. This baby ages with grace! Vivid gold in the glass, vivaciously fragranced, a joy to drink!!

Really good. Bright, long, fruit, with some complexity from that touch of oak.
