A Chenin unicorn that flys off any wine list it finds itself on. In this case, 86d out of only 6 bottles received by Per Se. The nose is what is most captivating. So unique. It’s a bit less reductive and perhaps more exotic than the Noels de Montbenault of the same vintage. It’s layered with flavors of ginger, Leflaive-like sesame, dried apricots, sour apple and salted hazelnuts. There is good richness and a wild texture that’s balanced by fine acidity. A delicious Chenin that I wish there was more of!

A reductive nose, which blew off in about 20 minutes. In the mouth you stop for a second and ask yourself, Jura? Oxidative palate yet crazy levels of freshness. A fire hose of acidity that assaults your mouth but is joined by pure fruit. Wonderful intense finish. Like Vatan, singular and not everyone’s taste.

Not as enjoyable, or even as interesting, as previous vintages/bottles. Volatile character was off putting.
