The ripeness of the 2018 vintage gives an almost Syrah/Viognier character to the Chinon La Croix Boissée, which offers sweet black fruit and a creamy apricot note. Sumptuous yet never ever opulent, it's almost as if the wine's just done a yoga class. Plentiful tannins give the inside of your cheeks a chalky rub, while there's surprising freshness considering the ripeness, leading to a lengthy finish. This is a baby that will turn out to be a great adult. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, October 2021)

A surprising Chenin Blanc from Chinon’s tuffeau soils, the result of long, long fermentation (12 months) in 500-liter barrel. On the nose, wet earth, citrus blossom and honeysuckle, then full-bodied with lots of peach, clementine and even mango flavors, a salty core, and a dry, stony finish.

Gulped this down way too fast and too young. But we need some summer joy today

Pours clear gold. Tropical fruit, almonds on the nose. Fuller bodied, resinous. Medium plus acidity. Palate has more citrus, white peach and toasted nuts. Hint of vanilla. On the finish, more toasted nuts and mineral spice. Delicious and probably even better with age.
