Pale gold and crystalline color, intense nose, frank fresh and very aromatic with floral, mineral and citrus notes. Fruity, delicate, tender and rich palate.A nice range of accompaniments for this gourmet cuvée include zucchini flower fritters, almond sole stuffed with green asparagus, Auvergne truffade, scallops with citrus butter, roast chicken with honey, leek risotto - asparagus and lobster bisque.
Half of a red and white pair, this white shows textured Chenin Blanc, nutty and with peppered apple flavors. It is a rich, tangy wine with ripeness and a juicy aftertaste. Drink from late 2021.
From clay-limestone hillsides and plateau vineyards exposed to the northeast and southwest in St Louans, the 2019 Chinon Les Chanteaux is a very aromatic Chenin Blanc with some artificial tropical fruit aromas on the loud and placative nose. Elegant and fresh on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, fruit-intense and mighty Chinon that leaves the palate a bit numb and the finish warm. A well-made crowd-pleaser that is easy to understand and easy to forget. 14% alcohol. Tasted in May 2021.
