2009 Simonnet-Febvre Chablis
Review Date: 12-24-2011
A rather creamy Chablis with green apple, citrus, stone and mineral notes and a crisp finish. A lot going on in this wine - a great value!

2007 Domaine des Baumard "Clos Ste.-Catherine" Coteaux du Layon

2009 François Pinon "Cuvée Silex Noir" Vouvray
Review Date: 11-30-2011
Another lovely chenin blanc from Francois Pinon - citrus and mineral and a dash of spice, with a touch of sweetness balanced by good acidity.

2009 Hetszolo Furmint Sec
Review Date: 11-25-2011
Oak overpowered the subtle fruit and floral notes, making it difficult to tell what was going on in this wine.

2011 Kloof Street (Mullineux Family Wines) Chenin Blanc Swartland South Africa
Review Date: 11-12-2011
This South African chenin blanc is round and creamy, with spice, mineral and tropical fruit notes and just enough acidity. While pleasant, this wine doesn't have the vibrant personality of other, less-oaked South African chenin blancs.

2010 Château Viranel "Tradition" Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc
Review Date: 11-11-2011
This interesting wine has inviting floral and stone fruit aromas but unfortunately a bitter taste overwhelms its subtle mineral and citrus flavors.

Review Date: 11-08-2011

2010 Domaine Cherrier & Fils Sancerre
Review Date: 10-28-2011
This refreshing and delicious wine has lovely notes of citrus, peach, melon, herb and mineral that jump out of the glass. Probably the most fragrant French sauvignon blanc I have ever tasted.

2009 Phillipe Tessier Cour Cheverny Blanc
Review Date: 10-28-2011
This is a very interesting wine - fragrant and spicy with citrus, mineral, and earth. Medium-crisp with a slightly oily texture. Kind of like a spicy Chablis.

2010 Simonsig Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch
Review Date: 10-21-2011
A straightforward sipping wine, with apple and pear, a hint of tropical fruit, and a dash of herbs. Almost not acidic enough for my taste - any less acidity and I might have thought I was drinking a Chardonnay!

2010 Pascal Janvier Coteaux du Loir Blanc
Review Date: 10-21-2011
Not as complex as the Jasnieres wines, but crisp, earthy as Mr. Manekin noted, and delicious. Sometimes I don't know why I ever drink chenin blanc from anywhere besides the Loir(e).

2010 Neil Ellis "Sincerely" Sauvignon Blanc South Africa
Review Date: 10-13-2011

2009 Les Chancelieres Vouvray
Review Date: 10-11-2011
An uncomplicated chenin blanc with citrus, mineral, and a bit of sweetness balanced by some zippy acidity.

2010 Cave de Tavel "Lauzeraies" Tavel
Review Date: 10-08-2011
A delicious rose with a raspberry aroma and subtle vanilla flavor tempered by brisk acidity. Flavors are not quite as complex as those of the 2010 Les Vignerons de Fontes Prieure Saint-Hippolyte Languedoc Rose (https://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1071842), but this is a thoroughly enjoyable wine nonetheless. A definite repeat buy!

2007 Clos La Coutale Cahors
Review Date: 10-07-2011
Has a very earthy aroma, as well as noticeable tannins and acidity. An okay wine, but not for casual sipping.

2008 Lioco "Indica" Mendocino Red Wine
Review Date: 10-03-2011
A good wine to warm the bones on a cool, rainy night. A well-balanced and fairly light wine considering the almost 14% alcohol. Noticeable tannins, some floral aroma, and dark fruit and spice flavors.

2010 Pascal Janvier "Cuvée Silex" Jasnieres
Review Date: 10-02-2011
A very crisp Chenin Blanc with plenty of citrus and stone notes. Less voluptuous than its regular Jasnieres counterpart but certainly delicious.

2010 Pascal Janvier Jasnières
Review Date: 09-25-2011
A delicious, zippy chenin blanc with plenty of stone fruit, mineral, and honey aromas that remind me of a Mosel Riesling minus the sweetness. Another great Jasnieres from Pascal Janvier! Can't wait to try the Cuvee Silex as well.

2010 Les Vignerons de Fontès "Prieuré Saint-Hippolyte" Languedoc Rosé
Review Date: 09-22-2011
A substantial rose that coats the mouth with fresh fruit flavors and spice, accompanied by a very slight hint of vanilla or butterscotch. Has a definite herbal, almost tobacco-like aroma.

2010 Reynon "Old Vines" Bordeaux Blanc
Review Date: 09-20-2011
Crisp and delicious white wine, with mainly citrus notes, but also with a faint waxy aroma and very slightly oily texture.
