2015 Pine Ridge California Chenin Blanc-Viognier Top Pick!
2015 Pine Ridge California Chenin Blanc-Viognier

In the early 1990s, Pine Ridge crafted this unusual and delectable blend as an experimental bottling, creating one of their most beloved and popular wines. This unique marriage of two varietals that would never share the same bottle in their native France 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 sophisticated and easy to enjoy.

2014 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.

2015 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

Jancis Robinson: "Easy and mouthfilling. Tangy and definitely Chenin. A great introduction to New Wave South African wine!" (9/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Secateurs Chenin Blanc has a slightly waxy, toffee apple-scented bouquet that perhaps lacks the complexity of some of the other vintages that I have tasted in the past. The palate is nicely balanced, quite primal in the mouth at first but settling down later on with lime cordial and peachy notes that deliver plenty of flavor. (NM)" (11/2015)

2014 Les Chancelieres Vouvray

This is a straightforward refreshing version of Vouvray Chenin Blanc. With a gold color, this wine is dry and smooth. It displays very nice citrus and fruity notes like ripe peach and green pear as well as flower aromas such as sweet acacia. The wine is round and fruity, well balanced and ends super fresh. A killer value in 100% Chenin Blanc. Picked from 45-year-old vines and then vinified in stainless and aged in tank for 2-3 months. Fantastic with fish dishes with an exotic flair and, of course, the typical meat and cheese starter plates.

2016 Pascal Janvier "Cuvée Silex" Jasnieres

This "Cuvée du Silex" is the reserve bottling of Pascal Janvier. The soils are flint-dominated and the resulting minerality is astounding. This is made from Chenin Blanc and comes from the tiny appellation of Jasnières due north of Vouvray. An unctuous white that's full of raw honey, chamomile, and white flowers. Delicious, supple, and an excellent companion to soft and hard cheeses.

Full-bodied in the mouth, but fresh with lively acidity, this is world-class Chenin at an unbeatable price.

2014 Momento Chenin Blanc/Verdelho Bot River Western Cape (Previously $30)

Jancis Robinson: "85% Chenin Blanc, 15% Verdelho. Subtle but definite aromas: apricot and apple. Firm, fresh and lightly textured. The blend works well here giving an aromatic profile but also a satisfying texture. Just a slight note of boiled sweets on the finish – some residual sugar, or is it simply fruit sweetness?

Dense, piquant and concentrated on the palate, this is a great and tension-filled Chenin with grip and persistence, but also great finesse and elegance. This is a highly complex and energetic, but also light-footed and stimulating wine with lots of mouthwatering salinity. A fascinating Chenin with great aging potential.

2012 Philippe Foreau "Domaine du Clos Naudin" Vouvray Sec

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Assembled from diverse parcels with vines averaging 40 years, the bright, lemon yellow 2012 Vouvray Sec from Philippe Foreau starts somewhat versatile on the nose where refreshing citrus and white pip fruit aromas are intermixed with nutty and mineral flavors in a rather discreet way. The subtle aroma leads to a very elegant, pure, really dry, fresh, medium to full-bodied Chenin with a stunningly salty and long, tension-full finish. The meager purity, freshness and salinity reminds me of Manzanilla and works extremely well as an aperitif or with fish as ...Read More »

2015 Radley & Finch Chenin Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Chenin Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. Grapes were sourced from both bush vines and trellised vines primarily in the Agter Paarl and Swartland regions. Winemaker Thinus Kruger primarily utilized indigenous yeasts in a particularly slow fermentation to develop complexity. The result is a citrusy and yellow fruited profile with hints of spice and grain. It is ready to drink right now, but will fill out and add complexity for a couple of years.

2013 Le Rocher des Violettes Pétillant Montlouis Sur Loire

Some would call this pétillant naturel méthode ancestrale, which is loosely the same thing: a sparkling wine made in bottle with its native yeast and without any sugar additions (no chapitalization during initial fermentation, no sweet yeast liquor added for secondary in bottle, and no sweet dosage at disgorgement the bottles are simply topped off with the same wine and corked). Indeed, Originel is made without any additions or modern interventions of any kind. It is absolutely natural, a requirement enshrined by its makers and, as of 2007, by law for Pé... Read More »

Whisky Advocate: "Catherine Breton makes this wine from 40-year-old vines growing on flinty, clay-limestone soils. It has the natural wine scent of apple cider and an austere finish of lemon and flint. Smoky and salty, this is a Vouvray for duck rillettes." (4/2016)

2008 Stéphane Cossais "Le Volagré" Montlouis-Sur-Loire

Stéphane Cossais had a promising future before his untimely death in 2009, leaving his last two vintages in barrel. The wines were bottled by Frantz Saumon, following precisely the preferences of Cossais. Le Volagre is 100% Chenin Blanc, farmed organically and aged for 24 months in demi-muids. This is one destined for long aging, so drink now to enjoy it in its youth or stick in your cellar for decades of pleasure.

Domaine la Capitaine "Methode Traditionelle" Vouvray Sec (Previously $19.00)

La Capitaine is a family-run winery that farms 27 hectares of the glorious Chenin Blanc grape. This sparkler made in the Champagne method shows a beautiful floral nose that leads to fine, elegant bubbles and a zippy finish. It's a festive wine for parties, but would also make a great accompaniment to a spicy Indian curry.

Full-bodied, dense and powerful, this is highly complex and persistent, yet refreshing and transparent Chenin with a juicy fruit and lots of grip, energy and tension.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Joly's golden-yellow 2014 Savennières Les Vieux Clos is pure and elegant on the herbal and flinty nose, where spicy lemon/lemon grass and ripe, concentrated fruit aromas are displayed. Very well defined! On the palate, the 14.5% alcohol comes along in perfect balance: very elegant and finesse-full. since the powerful body is lifted by a piquant acidity, a lovely transparency and finesse, and finally escorted by a dense and lush fruit texture. The finish is very precise, fresh and aromatic, but also full of elegance, salt and stimulation. (RP)" (10/2016)

Sexy perfume of peach, orange blossom, flowers, nutmeg and nut oil, plus a suggestion of redcurrant.

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.

2015 François Chidaine "Les Tuffeaux" Montlouis Sur Loire (Demi-Sec)

Only a couple of years ago, François Chidaine was only considered to be one of the wine-makers to watch in the Loire. This assessment was based on his excellent vineyard holdings in Montlouis, an appellation on the rise, and his commitment to biodynamic farming and non-intervention wine-making style.

This wine is from the Bournais vineyard, which has clay and limestone soil, as opposed to the more commonly found silex or flint. As such, this wine is the closest stylistically to those produced in nearby Vouvray, with rich, full body and good density.
