I Hope I Age As Beautifully
05/13/2012
by InGreatSpirits
I was delighted to try this wine at a blind tasting this past week, and feel that it has lived up to the positive comments from years past, and aged very well. We tried two '96 wines made from Chenin Blanc, and the other didn't even come close to the complexity and balance which this one exhibited. Chalk dust and yuzu peel (a mild Japanese citrus fruit) on the nose, Gala apple tossed in melted butter and a hint of brown sugar on the mouth, and a lingering finish with enough acidity to pair wonderfully with a St. Nectaire washed-rind cheese. Discoveries like this are the reason I moved to France last week!

In all styles, expect high levels of acid that can provide tremendous amounts of balance to these wines...
