Domaine Arnaud Lambert Coulee De St-Cyr Saumur 2014

$39.99

A new benchmark Chenin from the supremely talented Arnaudandnbsp;Lambert, this bottling comes from a single parcel of 70+ year old vines inandnbsp;St.-Cyr-en-Bourg. Arnaudandnbsp;avoids battonage for this cuvandeacute;eandnbsp;to preserve tension and freshness, which this delivers in spades. On the nose, this shows fresh herbs, orchard fruits and a floral hint. On the palate, the wine is chiseled but generous, with honeycomb and white fruits coming through on the especially lengthy finish.andnbsp;

WNH Chenin tasting with @Bill Bender , @Shawn R , @Eric LaMasters , @Mike R . Very solid and enjoyable single vineyard chenin with a bit of bottle age to it. I hardly drink any chenin, so while my experience is limited, I did a lot of research prior to this bottle and enjoyed it while open. Initially, I had this too cold. Ripping acidity followed by overly tart lemon. After it sat open in the bottle an hour and got closer to room temp, it leaned toward an Alsatian Riesling type nose mixed with a Chablis like palate. It never went full limestone and petrol on the nose, but it got close...but then it went more waxy, honeysuckle, and powdered lemon bar. The longer it was open, the more reminiscent it became of the Moreau-Naudet Les Forets Chablis I had about a month ago. Extremely pure and underripe yellow orchard fruits, slightly chalky, high acidity, and beeswax toward the finish. I’d hold another 3-5yrs before the next bottle.

So tasty! Super tart with some bitterness and creaminess (lees?) and curry spice to balance it out. Really great with monkfish in butter sauce. Not loving Lambert’s new price point though
