Ultra-classic Loire Chenin. Bruised Macintosh apples dipped in honey—perfect for Rosh Hashanah dinner. Waxy, chamomile, hay. Viscous but dry. Mouthwatering acidity and minerality.

Terrific value Chenin Blanc. Crisp pear, citrus, hay and honey. Dry with excellent acidity. So versatile- I had it with razor clams, branzino with anchovies and pasta with a light Ragu and it was a home run with each. Very versatile.

Good acidity but not electric. Citrus and subtle herbaceous notes. Maybe a hint of some residual sugar despite being a sec.

Beautifully textured, almost oily like Viognier but not; Green apples & skins on the nose; deep, deep minerality & that Chenin Blanc cotton thing on the palate. Just a super bottle of wine. Plus the bottle is built like a tank.

Honeyed lemon peel; yellow flowers, ripe juicy Macintosh apple, less of the lanolin and hay that I’d expect from CB and more of petrol/petrichor. Delicious either way. Mouthwatering acid with a round texture.

Superbly complex Chenin, crisp at first, with fruity intensity to follow, and then a dry finish. Excellent.

low on acid and mineral, but hugely rich, smooth, and delightful. Good fruit.
