2017 Domaine du Petit Clocher Anjou Blanc

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Superripe grapes are the secret behind this rich wine. Although it is dry, this floral wine offers a touch of honey that balances the crisp apple flavors and opulent texture. Still young, this intense wine deserves to age. Drink from 2020. (RV)" (09/2018) 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 property has grown from 5 ...

2018 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

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 ...

2018 Tania & Vincent Carême "Terre Brulée" Chenin Blanc Swartland

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.

2018 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.

2016 Domaine du Petit Coteau Vouvray Sec

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.

2018 A.A. Badenhorst "Curator" White Blend Swartland

"The CURATOR is a range of dynamic wines that are selected after the vintage each year. The grapes are grown in the Swartland region on the West Coast of Southern Africa. The vineyards are mostly bushvines growing in granite and slate soils, sourced from a number of traditional farmers. Chenin Blanc is the backbone and structure of this blend. The Chardonnay was naturally fermented and took a long time to complete fermentation, resulting in great texture and wacky aromas of dried peaches and apricots and ripe citrus. The Viognier, from one of Badenhorsts ...

2018 Domaine Vincent Carême "Spring" Vouvray Sec

91 points Wine Spectator: "Silky, with great intensity and focus coming from the firm backbone of acidity, which stands behind the flavors of stone fruit, white raspberry, elderflower and lime. A vanilla bean note emerges on the inviting finish. Enjoyable now, but will show better in several years. Best from 2021 through 2029. (AZ, Web Only-2019)" K&L Notes: 91-93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This is Vincent's négociant Vouvray, made from purchased fruit, with 13.2% alcohol and 4 g/l residual sugar.

It's a natural pairing for seafood. *Editors' Choice* (JG)" (12/2018) Vinous: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc Viognier is a tasty, aperitif-styled white to drink young, while the white peach, apricot and jasmine notes retain their freshness.

2016 Florent Cosme "Utopie" Vouvray Demi-Sec

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".

2017 Clos du Gaimont Vouvray Sec

93 points Wine & Spirits: "François Chainier purchased this parcel in 1997 in the Clos de Nouys, where he now produces a classic Vouvray. His 2017 is tight and reduced at first, the flinty notes slowly yielding tart-apple flavors with a limestone-dust mineral cool. Stay with it over the course of several days and that fruit extends its savor, the scents evoking an abandoned apple orchard in the woods. Concentrated and cellar worthy, this needs five years to show its best with pan-roasted trout." (04/2019) K&L Notes: Francois Chainier has a long familia ...

2016 La Source du Ruault "La Coulee d'Aunis" Saumur Blanc

"Creating wines in harmony with nature" is the philosophy of Jean-Noël Millon, seventh-generation family winemaker at this family run estate. Located in the village of Varrains, just a short distance from the town of Saumur, Jean-Noel farms 14 hectares of vineyards biodynamically all planted on the clay-limestone tuffeaux that makes the region so special. The Coulee 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 ...

2017 Birichino "Jurassic Park Vineyard" Santa Ynez Chenin Blanc

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2016 Chenin was the product of an early September pick at a very modest sugar level, suitable for sparkling wine, and a late-harvest pick from which we’d intended to make a demi-sec or moelleux until discovering that the majority of botrytis-infected clusters had been ingested by every bird in sight rendered lethargic, corpulent, barely able to fly, their breath reeking of Bonnezeaux. Also remaining were an intact green, photosynthesizing canopy and a very few, yellow/green, crisp and clean, Central Loire time machine clusters min ...

Chenin Blanc is undoubtedly one of the favorite varietals at Dashe Cellars.

2017 Dry Creek Vineyards Clarksburg Chenin Blanc

Connoisseurs Guide: "Fresh and clean with nicely combined elements of white melons and lime zest coming through on the nose, this slightly rounded Chenin Blanc conveys a similar mix of slightly juicy fruit in its dry, but far-from-austere flavors, and, while reasonably well-sustained at the finish and a wine that is very easy to like at the price, it is understandably not quite as lively as its year-younger, marginally preferred mate from 2018. *Good Value*" (09/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is a long-running success story for the winery.

2018 Division-Villages "L'Isle Verte" Yakima Valley Old Vine Chenin Blanc

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2018 L’Isle Verte shows the deliciously savory and mineral qualities of this grape. Leading with salty notes of beach sand, toasted coconut, lime, and a faint hint of mushroom, this wine is truly 'clawed from the earth.' Long, gorgeous, mouth-coating acid, and the structure we’ve come to expect from Willard’s superb old-vine Chenin fruit give way to a lime zesty finish. The Yakima Valley is home to our old vine Chenin Blanc at Willard Farms. This Chenin vineyard has over 40 years of own-rooted development at the highest elevation ...

92-94 points Winedoctor.com: "This is a sample of Jérôme's main white cuvée, vinified in stainless steel. It has a very fresh and pure nose, pretty, with some clean orchard and stone fruit nuances. The palate shows the same, with a rich phenolic seam running underneath, giving it a grippy and confident substance. There is also a twist of Chenin bitterness here that also appeals. It is full, broad and firm, with a very nice tension in the finish. Good. From my first Loire 2018 report." (02/2019)

Delicious, supple, and an excellent companion to soft and hard cheeses.

In contrast to the racy, very low abv 2016, this vintage of Ji Ji Ji Chenin is a big boy at 11.5% abv! We love what Gen del Alma is doing in Tunuyan (Uco Valley), in this case from the paraje (sort of like the French notion of a lieu dit, or named place smaller than a village but bigger than a vineyard) of Villa Seca. With tangy quince flavors and great concentration due to the 70-year-old vines, this Chenin is a gem and a steal for the price.
