2016 Pine Ridge California Chenin Blanc-Viognier

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 sophisticated and easy to enjoy. As do several other Napa Valley and Sonoma County wineries, Pine Ridge sources the Chenin (80%) from the Clarksburg appellation in the Sacramento River Delta, while the Viognier (20%...

2013 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Splash this into a decanter to release its fragrance and you’ll find a fresh, brisk chenin. It has the generous, waxy texture of the variety, the chew of the fruit skin, along with hints of lanolin that make it a natural partner to chèvre. Secateurs is Adi Badenhorst’s "second tier" from the 69 acres of unirrigated bush vines he and his cousin, Hein, own in Siebritskloof, on Paardeberg Mountain." (2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Secateurs Chenin Blanc, which comes from bush vines planted on granite slopes, has a pleasant, simple bouquet with dried lemon peel, a touch of ...Read More »

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Mont" Vouvray Demi-Sec

95 points Wine Spectator: "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 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.

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 »

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 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.

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

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Mont" Vouvray Sec

94 points Wine Spectator: "Green plum and verbena notes lead the way for now, with a flash of quinine on the finish. This is juicy, but still a bit compact overall, with the core of ample pear, quince and ginger flavors in reserve. Just wait for everything to knit together and stretch out, as the purity and length are there. Best from 2018 through 2028. (JM)" (9/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Perhaps less fruity than the Clos du Bourg, but just as full and fleshy on the palate. Ripe without being overblown, thanks to fine acidic structure. Perhaps needs a few years to open up. (RH)" (9/2016)

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)

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 Bryan MacRobert "Steen" Hillside Vineyard Chenin Blanc Swartland

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 »

2015 Clos de l'Elu Anjou Blanc (Natural)

Clos de l'Elu is an older property which was taken over in 2008 by Thomas Carsin and Gregoire du Bouexic. It is located in the small village of Saint Aubin de Luigne not too far from the city of Angers. Under the inspiration of growers such as Jo Pithon they have converted all of their holdings over to biodynamic farming and continue to acquire vineyards and convert as they grow. The wines are fermented with native yeasts, minimal intervention and little SO2. The Anjou Blanc is made from 100% Chenin Blanc and represents the pinnacle of what is being pro... Read More »

2014 Astrolabe "Wrekin Vineyard" Chenin Blanc Marlborough

93 points Bob Campbell: "Fine, tight Chenin Blanc with green apple, mineral and a suggestion of roasted nut flavours. Bone-dry wine with a backbone of fine acidity that promises to let the wine age well. It’s good to see more Chenin Blanc labels on the market, particularly wines of this calibre." K&L Notes: From a hillside block in the southern valleys. This Chenin Blanc is whole cluster pressed and fermented with wild yeast in neutral oak barrels. The wine sits on fine lees and is stired frequently to build texture and complexity. It shows lovely toasted grains, baked pear, quince, some sto... Read More »

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 »

The long, heather honey-accented finish has light piecrust and crystalized ginger hints. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)" (9/2017) Jancis Robinson: "RS 84 g/l. Crystallised citrus and floral scent, preserved lemon fruit on the palate. Long, sweet finish and there isn't quite as much flavour complexity here as on the 'basic' Clos du Bourg Moelleux – but it will doubtless come with age. (RH)" (9/2016)
