100 points Vinous: "It is an ethereal wine that gives me no choice but to use a simple word loaded with meaning and one I rarely use with respect to wine...perfection. The 375ml bottle was examined over the course of two weeks during which time it barely changed. Each time I put it under a microscope looking for a fault. I never found one. Golden in colour, it has an intoxicating bouquet with orange sorbet, quince, lemon verbena and a very slight Aszú-like note that hovers in the background. Having recently tasted plenty of Sauternes, I can’t help notici...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This intense, full-bodied wine is full of baked-apple and cooked-pear flavors. There is certainly acidity here, but it is integrated in the wine's ripeness and weight. The perfumed, nutty aftertaste is as full as the rest of this rich wine. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation. Julien is the winemaker, Stephane in charge of the viticulture and Vincent oversees the administration and sales. Over the last decades the propert...

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."
Price: $10.99

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 ...

All the wines at this 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.

Connoisseurs Guide: "Pine Ridge’s winning white-blend recipe for Chenin Blanc and Viognier is on full display again in 2019, and, as in the past, the latest is an insistently fruity, lightly sweet wine whose buoyant, mildly melony traits are graced by touches of honey and flowers. It will be equally appealing as a warm-weather refresher when sipped on its own or as a sidekick to the likes of cracked crab, and it continues to claim a prominent place on our list of very good white wine values. *Good Value*" (09/2020) Wine Enthusiast: "This medium-bodied ...

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...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant and racy, showing rapierlike focus, exhibiting notes of Bosc pear, green plum and verbena. Silky in texture, with a soft mouthfeel. The acidity brings forth ginger and quinine hints on the mouthwatering finish. Best from 2021 through 2028. 500 cases made, 150 cases imported. (AZ)" (03/2020)

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.

94-96 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This cuvée comes exclusively from 100-year old vines. It begins in a smoky, matchsticky, reductive frame of mind, the fruit profile dominated by mirabelle, peach skin and honeysuckle. A beautiful character here, with evident old-vine concentration, It feels sinewy, substantial, minerally too, fresh with energy and an acid-bright character. Youthful, lifted by retained carbon dioxide, long and tense in the vivacious finish. Fabulous potential." (05/2019)

Chinon Blanc makes up less than 5% of the production in this region most famous for its red wines. Baudry delivers and exceptional version, made with 100% Chenin Blanc planted over clay and limestone soils. Fermented in 500L barrels until dry, this is a rich chenin on a sinewy frame. Much like a dry Vouvray or Saumur Blanc, this has incredible intensity. It is beautiful to drink now but will age for several years as well.

94 points Vinous: "The 2018 Chenin Blanc Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Old Vines is a dense, powerful wine that shows the more savory side of Chenin off to great effect. Dried flowers, herb, almonds and mineral inflections give the Chenin its super distinctive personality. There is plenty of texture and depth, but the fruit is pushed into the background. The Foxen Chenin is one of the most distinctive wines in Santa Barbara. It is also an insane value.

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)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Displaying a golden hay color, the 2018 Cartology Bush Vines is a blend of 90% Chenin Blanc and 10% Sémillon. The wine opens with an expressive and bountiful nose with waxy citrus and nutty tones that give way to an undercurrent of minerality with a persistent dusty essence in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine explodes on the palate with elements of smoke, lees and beeswax before giving way to hints of oak with flavors of marzipan, almond butter and dusty peach skin. The frame is held together by a tight...

96 points Decanter: "Clos Michet is the smaller of two adjacent clos that the Domaine de la Taille aux Loups owns in the commune of Saint Martin le Beau. The larger is the 12ha Clos Mosny, which is entirely enclosed by a wall. The Clos Michet has sandy soil, faces southwest and west and the vines are at least 50 years old. The age of the barrels used are a quarter new, quarter one year, quarter two year and a quarter three years. Tasted in early February Clos Michet was richer than Rémus with thrilling tension between the fruit and acidity with a very lo...

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...

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...

91 points Decanter: "With a background in the restaurant business, Ken Forrester had a vision of Chenin’s potential that has put him at the forefront of South Africa's Chenin movement. The Old Vine Reserve, which comes from 40-year-old-vines picked by hand, is more affordable than Forrester’s FMC, however, like the FMC, it still ages remarkably well so expect it to show well in 20 years. The youthful 2018 has a very attractive delicate texture, displaying balance and finesse with apple and pineapple notes and some soft acidity on the finish." (06/2019) ...

95-97 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "Two components of the final blend tasted. Barrel #1: From the 25-year old vines, representing about 20% of the final blend. Intense, expressive, laden with stone and schist. Beautifully styled, fresh, polished, tense, but carrying plum, peach and orange fruits. Minerally, still showing some residual carbon dioxide. Long and persistent. Barrel #2: A blended barrel, wine from all three parcels, representing about 80% of the final blend. A more reticent nose, more subtle, but smoky and minerally. Great energy on ...

Winery notes: Chenin Blanc has a long and storied history on Pritchard Hill. The original vines were already producing when Donn and Molly purchased the property in the late 1960s. Following a replanting in 2004, Chenin Blanc was reintroduced as a "Signature" designation with a twist. While the Signature Cabernet bear Donn Chappellet’s name, Molly Chappellet’s signature graces the Chenin Blanc label. To add depth and complexity, this Chenin Blanc was fermented in a combination of neutral French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. This sophisticated ex...

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." *Biodynamic*

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...

Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation. Julien is the winemaker, Stephane in charge of the viticulture and Vincent oversees the administration and sales. Over the last decades the property has grown from 5 to 80 hectares that stretch across the appellation including some very select parcels in the Côteaux du Layon (home of one of the region's great dessert wines).

95-97 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "From six rows in the Clos des Mailles, the vines identified and the fruit separated out in the basis of a band of phthanite which runs through the vineyard, which is otherwise blue schist. This sample comes from a 2013 barrel, although the vinification was in barrel, jarre and a 1.5-hectolitre demi-john. This has a striking and clearly quite different character to the 2018 Clos des Mailles component barrels just tasted. The nose is all honey and straw, with perfumed pear, and yet it feels so tense.
