VinoUS Media Review
Rated 93
The 2022 Chenin Blanc Old Vine comes from 3 vineyards, all older than 35 years old, cropped around 30hL/ha, whole bunch pressed, half fermented and matured in 300 and 500-liter French oak and half in stainless steel for 11 months, at which point they are blended. It has a more complex bouquet than the Original Chenin, with yellow fruit, hazelnut, and a bit of jasmine coming through with aeration. These aromatics are very involving. The palate is wellbalanced. The texture of this Chenin is its great attribute: waxy/resinous. Thefinish is vivacious with lemongrass and a dab of white pepper. Wonderful. Drink 2024-2036.(Neal Martin)

Wine Tasting Notes
Honeyed pear, ginger and citrus flavors complemented by a firm minerality and spicy edge. Sourced from old vines from three vineyards. Characterized by their complex soils. Rich, intense, yet elegant and delicate on the palate. Profound wine that changes perspective.
