Brendan Stater-West "Les Chapaudaises" Saumur Blanc 2015

92 Our Score
(8/2017) Brendan Stater-West, an American teaching in Paris, fell in love with wine in the mid-2000s and decided to change gears. His passion for Chenin Blanc lead him to the cellars of Domaine Guiberteau in Saumur. Here, Romain Guiberteau taught him how to make beautiful Chenin and, eventually encouraged him to make his own wine. This is it! Preserved lemon, baked pear, chalk, cremini and thyme flavors lead a dense palate with a subtly searing finish. A very fine effort, worthy of a couple years in the cellar!

Domaine Guiberteau "Breze" Saumur Blanc 2015

93 Our Score
(9/2018) Domain Guiberteau crafts some of the finest examples of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc to be found anywhere. The wines have been described as having "punk rock violence", but also supreme elegance. The "Breze" bottling comes from arguably one of the best sites for Chenin Blanc in the world. Sourced from two old-vine parcels, yields are small in the best of times. This is built for the long haul, and needs some time in bottle to temper its rather aggressive youthful nature. Without a doubt, this is truly one of the great Chenins of the world!

Damien Laureau "Le Bel Ouvrage" Savennieres 2014

92 Our Score
93 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "The citrusgolden 2014 Savennieres Le Bel Ouvrage is from up to 50-year-old vines on deep and stony, not very fertile soils. Fermented in tank and aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels, and another six months in tanks, this is a clear, ripe, intense and fruity Chenin; it has some yeasty flavors in the background. Full-bodied, rich and highly elegant, this is a dense, concentrated, perfectly balanced, refreshing mineral Chenin with a firm and persistent structure; it has a long, complex and powerful finish. The aging potential is enormous, but the wine is also pretty accessible today. Drink Date 2016 - 2030."

Brendan Stater-West "Les Chapaudaises" Saumur Blanc 2016

Winemaker's Notes
"Fresh and elegant nose of citrus fruits, white fruits, minerality and slightly toasted notes. The mouthfeel gives great purity with the same flavors detected on the nose. The length is very good and the finish is one of great freshness thanks to the saline notes brought by the terroir. Taste in the next 15 years with fish, crustaceans, goat cheese or an aperitif."

Champalou "La Moelleuse" Vouvray 2015 500 ML

95 Wine Spectator
(9/30/2017) "Intense, with racy quince, green fig, mirabelle plum and yellow apple fruit zipping through, all while keeping an unctuous hint at the same time thanks to the sweet edge. The long finish has lovely tension and cut. A very focused, pure dessert wine. Drink now through 2040. 76 cases imported."

La Grange Tiphaine "Nouveau Nez" Sparkling Chenin 2015

90 Our Score
(3/2018) Damien Delechenaueau, president of the Montlouis-sur-Loire appellation (next door to Vouvray), crafts this singular sparkler. While comparable to cremant-style wines from its more famous neighbor, the Nouveau Nez has a focus and precision unlike most of its kind. The uncanny balance of lees aging with beautiful Chenin fruit evokes honey-drizzled apple and citrus, sprinkled with chopped almonds, and set atop a foundation of lightly buttered toast. Simply delicious.

Domaine Perrault-Jadaud "Les Grives Soules" Vouvray 2016

92 Our Score
(5/2018) An excellent example of dry Vouvray and totally classic in style. Flavors of apple blossom, nectarine, baked pear and apple with hints of button mushroom, lavender honey, salinity and limestone minerals. The finish is long and youthful and is capped by an appropriate astringent chalky-grip. A rich mouthfeel and a searing spine, this delicious Vouvray will drink well for the next 5-7 years. One of the best examples we've had in quite some time.

(7/2019) Nervy, subtle and classic, this Vouvray delivers delicious Chenin Blanc flavors of white rock, white tea, spring flowers, red apple, green apple snd baked citrus along with medium-plus acidity and a chalky finish. Try with a fresh goat cheese and balsamic drizzled heirloom tomato salad.
