90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, showing a gentle texture, with intense acidity giving energy to the flavors of yellow apple, lime and honeysuckle. Salty mineral elements emerge midpalate, leaving a savory aftertaste. *Smart Buy* (AZ)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: #65 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2019 This project is headed by Vincent Carême of Loire Valley fame. Inspired by the South African landscape (and perhaps also by his wife, Tania, who hails from the Cape region), he has decided to create this southern expression of Chenin Blanc.
Price: $12.99

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Vincent Carême has assembled a 42-acre domaine in Vouvray, including several parcels of 45-year-old vines. He’s proven himself to be a masterful grower of Chenin, delivering wines like this racy, delicious 2017. This vintage has a textural beauty, combining silk and a more open, oxidative feel of cotton, while the fruit ranges from tart white currants to bruised apple. A spicy fennel-seed complexity makes the wine feel ornate. Compelling to drink now, this is worth following over the next several years." (04/2019) 92 points W...

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst’s entry-level Chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day’s fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to...

Neal Martin writes: "Adi Badenhorst is the charismatic winemaker who alongside Eben Sadie has put Swartland on the map. Outspoken, opinionated and talented, his charisma rubs off upon the wines he creates. Moreover, they are available at extremely affordable prices and serve as a perfect introduction to the delights of Adi’s and Swartland’s wines."

93 points John Gilman: "The 2016 Vouvray 'Utopie' Demi-Sec from Florent Cosme comes from his oldest parcel of vines, which are more than seventy years of age. The wine is raised similarly to the la Motte Sec in four hundred liter, four-to-eight year-old barrels. The wine delivers a fine aromatic constellation of sweet quince, a touch of pineapple, incipient honeycomb, flinty soil tones and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and complex, with great mid-palate depth, bright, zesty acids and excellent leng...

KL Notes: Craig Haarmeyer is a third generation Sacramenten who has been responsible for coining the term "Sacramento Terroir". He and his family are responsible for all of production, from picking to bottling, and believe in celebrating the history, place, and naturalness of varieties grown around the Sacramento area. Favoring vineyard sites that are grown sustainably and organic, Craig believes in allowing the terroir to express itself with a hands off approach to winemaking, stating "We add nothing but elbow grease." *natural ...

About this producer: "Our domaine is the work of four successive generations at Cléré Sur Layon.

93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc is one of the most expressive wines in the Lieu Dit range. Perfumed, generous and inviting, the 2017 has so much to offer. The Chenin emerges from Happy Canyon Vineyard, where the first Chenin was planted in an appellation that is better known for its Bordeaux varieties. Justin Willett fermented the 2017 in stainless steel and aged the wine in neutral oak.

94 points James Suckling: "Fresh-beeswax, chamomile and light lemon-blossom aromas with fresh melon. The palate has the same waxy, floral character. Very fresh dried peaches and mangoes flutter away on the finish. From biodynamically grown grapes." (12/2018) 93 points Sam Kim: "Complex and fragrant, the engaging bouquet shows baked apple, mandarin and potpourri characters with subtle savoury nuances. The palate delivers excellent weight and intensity, brilliantly enhanced by succulent fruit flavours and silky texture. It is flavoursome and varietaly cl...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bergamot and red fruit-scented 1997 Coteaux du Layon Cuvee le Paon exhibits a broad, sweet character filled with Cynar (an Italian artichoke liqueur), apricots, candied lemons, and tangy limes. It is beautifully rendered, lush, velvety, and flavorful. (PR)" (08/1999)

91 points James Suckling: "A fresh, fruity white with aromas and flavors of sliced lemons and pears. Peaches, too. Medium-bodied, crisp and flavorful. Off-dry. 78% chenin blanc and 22% viognier." (02/2020) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This medium-bodied wine tastes vivid and tangy but also boasts rich, ripe and round characteristics that broaden the flavors and lead to a lingering finish. It shows an abundance of ripe pear, apple and citrus flavors that really wake up the taste buds. *Editors’ Choice* (JG)" (12/2019) Wine Spectator: "Appealing notes o...

92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Old Vines is unctuous, deep and powerful, with terrific freshness for such a rich, exotic wine. Varietal notes ample up in this beautifully textured, oily Chenin from vines planted in 1996. (AG)" (09/2019) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Always one of the more distinctive white wines from the region, this vintage starts with aromas of lemon skin, forest herbs and chive. The palate is redolent of yellow grapefruit and rides a tense, tangy structure into the long finish. (MK)" (06/2019) Ro...

93 points James Suckling: "This is very old chenin, planted around 1960, and it has a terrific fusion of lemons, apples and pears with a succulent, sturdy, and dense feel to the palate and plenty of smooth-honed texture. Impressive. Drink or hold. " (09/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chenin Blanc comes from a 47-year-old dry-farmed vineyard. It was barrel fermented and bottled unfiltered. The nose opens slowly, giving up minerally aromas of crushed stone, sliced Bosc pear, fresh white blossoms and bruised red apple. It’s revea...

"Creating wines in harmony with nature" is the philosophy of Jean-Noël Millon, seventh-generation winemaker at this family run estate. Located in the village of Varrains, just a short distance from the town of Saumur, Jean-Noël farms 14 hectares of vineyards biodynamically, all planted on the clay-limestone tuffeaux that makes the region so special. The Coulée d'Aunis is 100% Chenin Blanc from one hectare that is all hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and spends about one year in primarily used barrique. The result is a remarkable dry Ch...

94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Skurfberg, Sadie’s Chenin Blanc from Olifantsrivier, has a very neutral, pressed flower bouquet that is much more backward than the other crus. The well-balanced palate presents veins of marmalade and orange peel, wonderful tension and superb precision on the finish. Though backward at the moment, this will certainly repay cellaring. " (11/2019)

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.

Philippe et René Socheleau founded the winery after falling in love with the beauty of Anjou and the Loire Valley. The domain consists of 40 hectares perched on the Saint Aubin de Luigné uplands above the Loire and the Layon rivers and produces a wide range of wines from Anjou's four villages. The Clos de la Casse is a dry wine and 100% Chenin Blanc. Winery tasting notes: "Gold yellow pale green color. Light gold-green tints, citronella tinges. The nose is present but delicate, because of the discretion of the Chenin. Floral notes reminding forested edge...

96 points, Winedoctor.com: "This is a vintage Philippe Foreau likens to 2002, which means he likes it, because like me Philippe is also a great admirer of that vintage. The alcohol here is 13.5%, and residual sugar 7.8 g/l, the highest ever figure in a sec cuvée from the Foreau family. It has great minerality on the nose still, with peach slices, apricot stone, pear and apple pip. A great style, tense, fresh and cool, carrying bitter citrus fruits, saline elements and white pepper. Wonderful tension and minerality here, in what has to be one of the great...

Joel B Payne writes: "If any producer has reached mythical status on the Loire, it is certainly Nicolas Joly. He is known to many, even to those who have never tasted a single glass of his wine, as the leading latter-day partisan of Rudolf Steiner’s agricultural philosophy. Given that he produces only 40,000 bottles from their 15 hectares of vineyard, it is not surprising that many wine lovers may never have even seen one."

2016 Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray Demi-Sec
Back In Stock!
Based in Vernou in the Loire Valley and covering 27 hectares, the Sylvain Gaudron estate has been family-owned since the 1890s. About 2/3 of the vines on the domaine are at least 30 years old on average. The soils are calcareous marls, as is typical of the area, and ideal for the Chenin Blanc grape variety. Gilles Gaudron currently runs the estate, and keeps up the tradition of quality by ensuring hand-harvesting, whole bunch pressing, with closely spaced gobelet-pruned vines. Fermentation is slow, and using natural yeasts, with a few of the still wine v...

97 points, Winedoctor.com: "In this vintage the alcohol is 13.5% and the residual sugar 20 g/l. This has some pithy notes of citrus fruits, orange and pink grapefruit in particular, along with apricot stone and more tropical notes of mango on the nose. It feels really quite superb, exotic yet fresh and cool, the sweetness balanced by bitter elements and a citrus energy. Polished and plump yet fresh, this feels so perfectly defined, a fantastic demi-sec cuvée, energetic, long and minerally. A superb result and one that must be added to the cellar." (09/20...

90 points Wine & Spirits: "A native of Angers, Thomas Batardière apprenticed with Mathieu Vallée of Château Yvonne while studying viticulture, then struck out on his own in 2012. He earned Demeter certification for his vines in 2015, including the six acres of Chenin Blanc he farms for this wine. It comes off as a 'natural wine,' with cidery notes, even as there’s enough taut structure and grip to keep the waxy florals, lanolin complexity and sweet stone-fruit flavors in check."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Première Trie is deep and intense yet pure and chalky on the distinctive, slightly flinty and yeasty nougat-scented nose. Vital, vibrantly fresh and tight yet fine and pure on the playful palate, this is an intense, sweet and impressively rich Chenin with tension, salt and finesse as well as fine but grippy tannins. This is an exciting Haut-Lieu that is already dangerously ready to drink but will become even more complex and dimensioned with bottle age. Definitely the Haut-L...

93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This is Jérôme's first white cuvée, vinified in stainless steel throughout, and this was bottled on April 11th. I find great purity on the nose, with pear and apple fruit. The palate follows on in the same vein, cool and bright, but possessing lovely density and freshness, with a fine persistence and energy in the end. Cool and refined, showing its colours very clearly, with a great pithy substance of fruit in the finish. Classically styled, with tension and poise." (11/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux is clear, deep, pure and flinty on the intense but fine and coolish-mineral nose. Very distinctive! Lush and intense but also pure, vital and tensioned on the palate, this elegant and seductive Le Mont offers a straightforward drive and a highly complex and energetic finish with grip and great mineral tension. A gorgeous, crystalline, persistently salty and tightly woven Chenin with great complexity and energy. Very attractive already today! (SR)" (05/2019)

Winery notes: "The Sacramento Delta features complex soils comprised of centuries of mineral run-off from the Sierras. Combined with afternoon winds and moderate temperatures, this climate creates bright Chenin Blanc and Viognier grapes ideal for our Three Pears wine... With inviting aromas of juicy tropical fruits, our Chenin Blanc Viognier includes flavors of ripe pears with hints of honey and vanilla on the palate, rounded out by a clean, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine by the pool on a hot, summer day or at your next afternoon picnic."

91 points Winedoctor.com: "This is 100% Chenin Blanc, from limestone soils. It is already in bottle. The nose is softly fragrant, with a gentle citrus-fruit substance, dressed with pretty and expressive notes of perfumed chalk. A similarly charming palate follows, with a gentle white peach and apricot character. Through the middle it feels fresh and plump, but overall the style is reserved, with restrained fruit but a nice phenolic backbone. Pretty, but it doesn't seem to communicate the generosity of the vintage." 91/100 (February 2019)
