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, #65 on The Top 100 Wines of 2019* (AZ)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: 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.

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. (AG)" (09/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc features scents of baker's yeast, cheese rind, toast, candle wax and smoke/gun...

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."

From the importer: "Emilien Colin started selling wine in 1900, but the family history goes back to 1735. From 6 hectares of vines, the domaine, located in the commune of Thoré-la-Rochette, grew to the current 30 hectares: 11 ha of Pineau d’Aunis, 11 ha of Chenin Blanc, 2.5 ha of Pinot Noir, 2 ha of Cabernet Franc, 2 ha of Gamay and 1.5 ha of Chardonnay. Today, 8th generation Patrice Colin runs the estate with his wife Valérie, who oversees accounting. Patrice takes care of all operations from vineyard work to vinification and bottling, helped by one ful...

Foxen co-founder Dick Doré is a sixth-generation Santa Barbara native, the winery bearing the name of a great-great-great-grandfather who set anchor off the coast here in the 19th century and never left (hence the distinctive Foxen logo). The winery was one of the first established in Santa Barbara County in the early 1980s, and he and winemaker Bill Wathen have been producing reference point single-vineyard wines from this neighborhood ever since. Their Chenin Blanc hails from the Ernesto Wickenden vineyard, a plot of old vines planted in 1966. The wine...

Vinous: "The 2019 Secateurs, Badenhorst’s super-successful entry-level label, comes from 26 Swartland vineyards and is matured in a combination of concrete and foudres. The nose grabs you by the olfactory senses with pineapple, saffron and tangerine aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, nice focus and good weight on the simple but crisp lime and pineapple finish. Delicious and a great value to boot. (NM)" (11/2019) Wine Spectator: "A floral version, with daisy and dandelion notes around the core of nectarine flavors. This is ...

Chateau d’Epiré is an 11 hectare estate. 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-ea...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This dry and complex wine offers gentle aromas of white flowers, crisp celery and green apples followed by a tangy white-peach flavor. Lifted acidity lends great balance in this rather light-bodied, bright and delicious offering. *Best Buy* (JG)" (03/2020) Connoisseurs Guide: "With a flowery overlay to its directly fruity aromas of ripe melons and white peaches, Dry Creek Vineyards' 2018 edition is a nicely filled Chenin Blanc that, while dry, consistently conveys so much persistent fruit that it intimates a sensation of jui...

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...

90 points Vinous: "The 2019 Kloof Street Chenin Blanc underwent a natural ferment with minimal SO2 addition. It has a knockout bouquet for an entry-level Chenin, featuring beautiful orange blossom and apricot scents mixed with hints of lemon thyme. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and impressive tension and energy. Poised all the way through to the finish, this is a superb Kloof Street Chenin Blanc that serves as a perfect introduction to Chris and Andrea Mullineux’s wines. (NM)" (11/2019)

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 Wine* ...

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...

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.

About this producer: "Winemaker Nathan Kandler stands firmly by his belief that the winemaker's ultimate mission is to translate the voice of the soil into the glass. But not all vineyards are created equal, and here enters Nathan's keen eye for finding the magical combination of variety, climate and soil. In California’s case, he believes the most special sites are often found outside of the iconic regions (Napa, Russian River, etc.). For Precedent, his first independent effort (his day job is as Associate Winemaker at Thomas Fogarty) he has found 3 uni...

2015 Philippe Foreau Domaine du Clos Naudin "Goutte d’Or" Vouvray Moelleaux
New!
From Importer Neal Rosenthal: "While the Moelleux Reserve is produced only a few times a decade, the Goutte d’Or is produced only a few times a century. Made only under the choicest conditions, the Goutte d’Or is a beacon of perfection. In the 94 years that the Foreau family have been producing wine, there have been only four vintages with conditions favorable enough to produce this high-water mark: 1947, 1990, 2011, and 2015. Carrying 170 grams of sugar, the Goutte d’Or is incredibly elegant at this early point. The fruit is sweet, the color a vibrant ...

Born into a winemaking family in Anjou, Pithon’s career as a vintner began in 1978 when he established his domaine. Pithon has significantly contributed to the recognition of the dry white wines of the Loire Valley as well as the lesser-known Anjou appellation by producing high-quality dry Chenin Blanc from the area, which was known chiefly for sweet wines. He also promoted organic farming, indigenous yeast strains and refraining from chaptalization or acidification, as well as the Burgundian approach of single-plot selections and barrel aging.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing aromas of sweet white flowers, quince, and minerals, the Coteaux du Layon Clos de Ste. Catherine is a thick, unctuous, amazingly sweet and creamy full-bodied wine. Layers of almond extract, fresh red currants and sweetened herbal tea are found in its lively and tightly wound personality. Superbly balanced and admirably long, this harmonious wine has the ability to age for over 20 years in an adequate cellar. Drink it between 1999-2025. (PR)" (10/1997)

This 100% Chenin Blanc comes from the nearly 40-year-old Saini Vineyard. Winery tasting notes: "This wine has alluring weight and richness, a silky texture and subtle aromas of Chamomile, orchard fruits and lemon confit. The palate offers a medley of Lanolin, white pepper and tea notes, as well as hints of straw that carry through to a lingering almost salty finish."

In Santa Ynez, the Jurassic Park Vineyard sits at 335 meters elevation on sandy, well-drained limestone-laden soils atop the playground of the dinosaurs of the Jurassic era. Planted in 1978, the age of this un-grafted Chenin vineyard qualifies it as "old" in Southern California. They treat it gently, ferment it with native yeasts, and keep it company through the winter. Each vintage shows them a new dimension and a new potential expression of this place. Winery note: "This sandy, rocky dinosaur boneyard vineyard has rapidly become one of the more sought-...

93 points Wine Spectator: "A monumental white, with lush flavors of quince paste and mirabelle plum at the core, while streaks of wet stone and chamomile give this another layer. Vibrant acidity keeps everything intact, providing harmony and keeping the fruit lingering on the long, waxy finish. (AZ)" (11/2019) K&L Notes: 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 R...

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." (9/201...

From the importer: "Located in Oiron a small village of Les Deux-Sèvres in the Loire Valley, Celine and Benoit Blet took over this small estate in 2004 located near the city of Poitier.

91 points Wine Spectator: "This is sweet, but relies more on precision and high-toned green apple, green fig, honeysuckle and quince notes that are broad, rich and powerful. The finish shows a drier edge, with chamomile flower and quinine hints stretching it out. (JM)" (10/2010)

Winery notes: Rajat Parr and Pete Stolpman's esoteric collaboration is labeled "Combe" referring to the French word for a small sheltered valley within a vineyard. This is 100% Chenin Blanc aged 19 months in second fill French 500L Puncheons. Botttles without any added Sulfur. A powerful, rich white wine just beginning to evolve into its prime. On the nose, the gun-smoke reduction is married to the toasty second fill French Oak granting a ton of depth under the bright cirtus fruit. On the palate the wine is both expansive and razor sharp with lively zipp...

Philippe et René Socheleau founded the winery after falling in love with the beauty of Anjou and the Loire Valley.

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.

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Huet Vouvray Petillant Brut (91ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw with a delicate bead. Intensely perfumed, spicy bouquet displays pear skin, nectarine, honeysuckle and mace, along with a strong mineral undertone. Nervy and precise on the palate, offering lively citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a deeper note of peach pit. The floral quality echoes on the long, spicy, impressively precise finish.

Bid on this bottle of 1945 Domaine Huët Vouvray "Le Haut-Lieu" Moelleux (98RP, 96JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged 70 years, the amber-colored (still with greenish reflections!) 1945 Vouvray Le Haut Lieu Moelleux comes from the FU plot within the lieu-dit Haut-Lieu. Dominated by chalk and silex, it has by far less clay compared to the rest of the site. The FU is vinified separately in certain years though not designated on the label. The 1945 was an exceptional vintage and was made by Gaston Huet himself, who returned from war in early spring. The wine shows a fantastically intense and refined peach and apricot fruit on the nose along with subtle stony, spicy and mineral flavors that give an extra purity and complexity. Five days later, the bouquet was even finer, showing honey and caramel flavors. Sweet, round and generous on the highly elegant palate, gorgeously intense and with great finesse and a finely drawn acidity, this is a beautifully concentrated and seductively sapp

Carrying 170 grams of sugar, the Goutte d’Or is incredibly elegant at this early point. The fruit is sweet, the color a vibrant gold. It is almost a crime to try to describe what is inside this dense wine. At the moment it shows a range of fruit from fresh pear to dried dates and honey comb. The texture is silky and rich, with a mineral core of acidity hiding a lot of the wine’s potential."
