2016 Clos du Gaimont Vouvray Sec Top Pick!
2016 Clos du Gaimont Vouvray Sec

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This grows at a parcel within the Clos de Nouys; the wine aged for several months in three-year-old casks from Cognac. This wine’s acidity may feel steely and unforgiving right now, but a day or two of air takes it into realms of wildflower honey and spring rain. The fruit fills out, saturating that lean frame with notes of beeswax and lanolin. Tuck this in your cellar and you’ll be happy to find it in ten years." (4/2018) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a dry wine, although still retaining those enticing honey flavors that are typical of Loire Chenin Blanc. Apple and ripe pear f ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Vincent Carême "Le Peu Morier" Vouvray Sec Top Pick!
2014 Domaine Vincent Carême "Le Peu Morier" Vouvray Sec

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Vincent Carême earned organic certification for his 42-acre domaine, including the two adjacent parcels of 50-year-old vines that provide fruit for Le Peu Monrier. He makes this wine in 400-liter barrels, ten percent of them new, leaving the wine to rest on the lees for ten months after spontaneous fermentation. It’s a massive Vouvray, all about white tuffeau soil and vertical structure, a wine that will need years to mellow from its powerful youth toward grandeur (it’s already pretty awesome). Fresh, firm, stony and brisk, hinting at apple skin and lemo ...Read More »

2016 Pine Ridge California Chenin Blanc-Viognier

Wine Enthusiast: "Crisp and tangy, this light-bodied wine has a (pardon the pun) piny green-apple aroma, vivid apple and lime flavors and lively acidity. It will be especially good as an apéritif to whet the appetite. (JG)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: In the early 1990s, Pine Ridge crafted this delectable blend as an experimental bottling, creating one of their most beloved and popular wines to date. This unlikely marriage of two generally uncoupled varietals unites the crisp, honeyed fruit of Chenin Blanc with the plush body and juicy stone fruit notes of Viognier, for a wine that is both s...

2015 Domaine du Petit Coteau Vouvray Sec

All the wines this at beautiful little organic domaine are made from 100% Chenin Blanc but vary in degrees of sweetness depending on where the grapes are harvested from. Planted in the sandy clay soils over tuffeau (that magical chalky soil of the Loire), these wines show the range of the quality that can be found in Vouvray for a mere pittance.

2015 Philippe Foreau "Domaine du Clos Naudin" Vouvray Demi-Sec (Previously $50)

Philippe Foreau is the third generation of the Foreau family to produce Vouvray from this fabled domaine--arguably the finest domaine in Vouvray--which his grandfather purchased in 1923. Philippe took the reins in 1983 upon the retirement of his father, Andre. These classic wines age remarkably well and each bottling exhibits an extraordinary panoply of flavors and aromas of fruit, floral, and earth elements. Importer Neil Rosenthal waxed rhapsodic about Foreau's 2015 vintage: "Philippe is a trusted soul who does not talk lightly, so when he claims a vin... Read More »

2015 Sylvain Gaudron "La Butte du Trésor" Vouvray Sec

Established in 1890, the Domaine Sylvain Gaudron is now run by the third generation of the Gaudron family. It comprises 59 acres spread out over 50 little plots. The soils are limestone-clay on a sub-layer of tuffeau. This is an incredibly affordable Vouvray that belies its meager price, delivering honeycomb, jasmine and quince aromas. In the mouth it's explosive, with crisp apple, Mirabelle plum, minerals and honeysuckle flavors. Zesty acidity and a clean finish make a tight package, perfect for seafood, salads and your favorite curry.

2017 Kloof Street (Mullineux Family Wines) Chenin Blanc Swartland South Africa

The Kloof Street Chenin Blanc comes from three sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: One parcel of 35 year old Chenin planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Kasteelberg, and two parcels of 40+ year-old dry land, bush vine Chenin grown in the decomposed Granite soils of the Paardeberg. After pressing, the juice is racked to tank (85%) and older French oak barrels (15%) for fermentation. Fermentation is with indigenous yeasts and lasts up to 6 weeks. The barrels are racked and blended with the tank fermented... Read More »

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Haut-Lieu" Vouvray Sec

Jancis Robinson: "Already has the lanolin character very prominently on the nose, then fairly light-bodied fruit with a ripe, tropical citrus character, plus a bit of peach. Perhaps a little brief, but has lovely typical Chenin funkiness. Drink 2017-2022. 17/20 Points (RH)" (6/2017)

2016 Château d'Epiré Savennières

Chateau d’Epiré is an 11 hectare estate and this bottling is sourced from 30-55 year old vines in schist soils. From importer Kermit Lynch: "Despite the beauty and timelessness of the building structures, it is the vineyard for which the domaine is best known. The Savennières from Epiré is regarded as Grand Cru. The domaine works primarily three parcels: La Croix Picot, Le Parc, and Le Hu-Boyau. It is the latter that sits just above another famous vineyard, La Coulée de Serrant. The soils here are rich, and the microclimate is ideal. Southern and south-e... Read More »

2015 Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray Demi-Sec

Wines from Jean-Francois Bourdy’s small cellar in Arlay have been trickling into the world’s wine markets with increasing regularity over the past decade (though there is a history of these wines in the U.S. even before World War II), causing considerable waves, an American fan club having accumulated, with buzz centering understandably around the Bourdys’ huge assortment of vintages spanning well more than a century. Bourdy's whites and reds are aged for a minimum of four years in cask before release.

2015 Alheit Vineyards "Cartology" Chenin Blanc Western Cape

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chris Alheit told me that at present, the 2015 Cartology Bush Vines comes from nine vineyards. It offers complex and quite arresting aromas of walnut, wax resin, linseed and smoke that blossom in the glass, always as much an intellectual proposition as a sensory one. The palate is well balanced with superb balanced, very saline in the mouth, evoking images of the sea, fanning out with citrus fruit mixed with hazelnut and Chinese five spice. This is yet another killer wine in the Cartology series since 2011. (NM)" (4/2017) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, with rich lemon curd, sh ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Mont" Vouvray Demi-Sec

95 points Wine Spectator: "*#6 on the Top 100 Wines of 2017* This tilts toward the flattering side of off-dry, showing a plump feel to the core of creamed pear, white peach and yellow apple fruit. Lovely verbena, honeysuckle and mineral accents keep this balanced and driven, with a long finish that lets the fruit echo. Drink now through 2032. (JM)" (9/2017) Jancis Robinson: "RS 20 g/l. Relatively closed in comparison with the other Huet Demi-Secs. Waxy texture, but not at all overweight. Oily character on the finish and supreme concentration on the length. (RH)" (9/2016)

2015 Bryan MacRobert "Steen" Hillside Vineyard Chenin Blanc Swartland

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Steen Chenin Blanc has an attractive bouquet with brioche and sesame notes infusing the light tropical tones. The palate is well balanced with an almost creamy-textured opening, hints of brioche and sweetcorn broth, lovely definition towards the finish that lingers in the mouth. (NM)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: Winemaker Bryan MacRobert graduated from the hallowed cellar of Sadie Family wines learning his craft from Swartland legend Eben Sadie. Fruit for this bottling is from old vines, on a steep, east facing slope in a very cool vineyard. This gives the wine a li... Read More »

2014 La Source du Ruault "La Coulee d'Aunis" Saumur Blanc

I first met vigneron Jean-Noël Millon while attending an organic wine fair in the South of France. The wines were impressive, so we arranged to meet on my trip through the Loire a couple of months later. A visit to the winery led to a trip through the ancient cellar, which had been carved from the chalky stone (known as tuffeau) below two centuries before. As we progressed from chamber to chamber, it began to feel more a like a spelunking expedition. Ancient coins were pressed into the walls by past workers, the old wine press was still intact, even the ... Read More »

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Mont" Vouvray Moelleux (Previously $50)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, even exuberant in feel, with a parade of Jonagold apple, green melon, Bosc pear and quince flavors streaming through, gilded with heather, honeysuckle and verbena notes on the long, lithe finish. Remarkably elegant despite the off-dry style. Drink now through 2035. (JM)" (9/2017) Jancis Robinson: "RS 54 g/l. Creamy, spicy, honeyed – this has a particularly flamboyant nose compared with Huet's other two Moelleux Vouvrays. Shows off fantastic white peach fruit, subtle spices and gorgeous sweet ginger notes to finish. (RH)" (9/2016)

2015 Birichino Jurassic Park Vineyard Santa Ynez Chenin Blanc

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light on the nose, this bottling from 37-year-old vines shows squeezed lemon wedge, chilled Asian pear, hints of jicama and white rose petals on the nose. The citrusy palate is driven by a grapefruit pith flavor and enhanced with a touch of chalk. The texture is compellingly grippy." K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "We are delighted to release our third vintage from what are considered old vines in Southern California: 33 year-old vine chenin planted in the Late Disco era on its own roots at 1100’ elevation. This sandy, rocky dinosaur boneyard vineyard has rapidly... Read More »

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Clos de Bourg" Vouvray Demi-Sec

Stays fresh and pure throughout. Tempting now but there's no rush. Drink now through 2032. (JM)" (9/2017) Jancis Robinson: "RS 19 g/l. Honey, apple, a tiny spicy note. Retains its fruit character more convincingly than the Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec. Excellent fruit clarity on the finish, with concentration to last. (RH)" (9/2016)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The yellow-golden 2014 Clos de la Coulée de Serrant, a world famous and iconic Chenin with its own appellation (Savennières – Coulée de Serrant AC), opens with a beautifully clear, precise and aromatic bouquet of ripe and dried, lovely concentrated stone and grapefruit, as well as some honey aromas intermixed with crushed crystalline stones and herbal flavors. Highly elegant, clear and vital on the palate, this full-bodied wine is immensely intense but also silky, transparent and finesse-full.

2016 Remhoogte "Honeybunch" Chenin Blanc Simonsberg Stellenbosch

Winemaker's Notes: "At 33 years old, this is the oldest vineyard planted on the Remhoogte estate. The wine has a golden colour and a complex aromas of fresh tropical fruit and honeysuckle. There are undertones of subtle butterscotch and spicy acacia karoo. The grapes are harvested in two seperate picks. The second "late pick" deliberately selects some botrytis affected bunches which adds a wonderful rich, exotic character to the wine."

2013 Fog Monster Amador County Chenin Blanc

Winery Notes: "The Fog Monster Chenin Blanc is, as Andrea Mullineux puts it, “an inside-out skin fermentation.” Grapes for the 2013 Chenin Blanc were sourced from the own-rooted, dry-farmed Story Vineyard planted in the decomposed granite soils of the Sierra Foothills in Amador County. Fruit is transferred whole cluster into T-Bins with a blanket of dry ice and then covered and given a 2 week carbonic maceration. After 2 weeks the bins were foot trodden and then pressed to concrete egg tanks to complete fermentation and then matured in those same eggs fo... Read More »

2004 Philippe Delesvaux Sélection de Grains Nobles Coteaux du Layon (500ml)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Seems very rich at first, with blood orange, persimmon and ginger notes, but then the fine minerality takes over, carrying it to a long elegant finish thanks to its rapierlike acidity. Each sip makes you want another. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases made." (11/2006) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Supersweet, but never cloying, with acidity, pear skin tannins and delicate sweet brown sugar and honey flavors. It is a great example of how Loire Chenin manages to keep its balance and freshness while still offering long-aging botrytis character. Keep for at least 10 years." (9/2008)

2015 Raised By Wolves "Driehoek" Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch

The Montpellier, or 'Lost' clone holds special reverence amongst South African producers of Chenin Blanc. Up until the 1990's it was widely planted until newer, heavier yielding clones became available and it was mostly replaced. Although commercially extinct, it is perhaps one of the finest quality selections of Chenin Blanc producing naturally lower yields and wines of richness and depth of flavour, often with a pithy texture and a refreshing citrus twist.

Subtle but persistent energy ripples through the very long finish. Drink now through 2035. (JM)" (9/2017) Jancis Robinson: "RS 18 g/l.

2014 Huët "Clos de Bourg" Vouvray Demi Sec

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Intensely yellow in color, the 2014 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec offers a very clear, intense and aromatic bouquet of ripe yellow fruits along with crushed stone flavors. The Demi-Sec version is even more open than the Sec, and the attack on the palate is lovely, round and fruit-intense, but also very mineral and firmly structured in the finish. This is a very elegant and mouth-filling Chenin with great finesse and a lingering salinity. It has good and grippy length. This wine is dangerously accessible already, though with an aging potential of 20-30, ...Read More »
