90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, showing a gentle texture, with intense acidity giving energy to the flavors of yellow apple, lime and honeysuckle. Salty mineral elements emerge midpalate, leaving a savory aftertaste. *Smart Buy, #65 on The Top 100 Wines of 2019* (AZ)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: 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.

Neal Martin writes: "Adi Badenhorst is the charismatic winemaker who alongside Eben Sadie has put Swartland on the map. Outspoken, opinionated and talented, his charisma rubs off upon the wines he creates. Moreover, they are available at extremely affordable prices and serve as a perfect introduction to the delights of Adi’s and Swartland’s wines."

2017 Lieu Dit Santa Ynez Valley Chenin Blanc
Back In Stock!
93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc is one of the most expressive wines in the Lieu Dit range. Perfumed, generous and inviting, the 2017 has so much to offer. The Chenin emerges from Happy Canyon Vineyard, where the first Chenin was planted in an appellation that is better known for its Bordeaux varieties. Justin Willett fermented the 2017 in stainless steel and aged the wine in neutral oak. (AG)" (09/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chenin Blanc features scents of baker's yeast, cheese rind, toast, candle wax and smoke/gun...

At this beautiful little organic domaine in Vouvray, all the wines 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.

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Gorgeously textured, swinging between unctuousness and freshness, this is asoulful wine from New Zealand’s godfather of biodynamics, James Millton. Millton’s reputation for Chenin Blanc is equally mighty, and this honeyhued beauty lives up to it in every way. Highly aromatic, like a flower garden, with heady scents of jasmine, hyacinth and lavender combining with rawhoneycomb, guava and pineapple rind."

Vinous: "The 2019 Secateurs, Badenhorst’s super-successful entry-level label, comes from 26 Swartland vineyards and is matured in a combination of concrete and foudres. The nose grabs you by the olfactory senses with pineapple, saffron and tangerine aromas. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, nice focus and good weight on the simple but crisp lime and pineapple finish. Delicious and a great value to boot. (NM)" (11/2019) Wine Spectator: "A floral version, with daisy and dandelion notes around the core of nectarine flavors. This is ...

2018 Domaine du Petit Clocher Anjou Blanc
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This intense, full-bodied wine is full of baked-apple and cooked-pear flavors. There is certainly acidity here, but it is integrated in the wine's ripeness and weight. The perfumed, nutty aftertaste is as full as the rest of this rich wine. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (10/2019) 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 propert...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of dried apple and pear, orange peel, elderflower and beach sand show on the nose of this tasty white wine. There’s an extremely textural tone of grapefruit pith on the palate, with a warmer hint of blanched almond as well. (MK)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: Foxen co-founder Dick Doré is a sixth-generation Santa Barbara native, the winery bearing the name of a great-great-great-grandfather who set anchor off the coast here in the 19th century and never left (hence the distinctive Foxen logo). The winery was one of the first e...

93 points James Suckling: "This is very old chenin, planted around 1960, and it has a terrific fusion of lemons, apples and pears with a succulent, sturdy, and dense feel to the palate and plenty of smooth-honed texture. Impressive. Drink or hold. " (09/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chenin Blanc comes from a 47-year-old dry-farmed vineyard. It was barrel fermented and bottled unfiltered.

Thibaud Boudignon is a young, talented rising star winemaker in the Loire. He is currently the winemaker at Château Soucherie, where his integrating winemaking approach and shift towards 100% organic practices has resulted in great success. The winery allows him to produce a small amount of wine under his own label on the side. Importer Skurnik Wines says: "Thibaud Boudignon is unquestionably one of the most exciting figures in wine today.

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.

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This dry and complex wine offers gentle aromas of white flowers, crisp celery and green apples followed by a tangy white-peach flavor. Lifted acidity lends great balance in this rather light-bodied, bright and delicious offering. *Best Buy* (JG)" (03/2020) Connoisseurs Guide: "With a flowery overlay to its directly fruity aromas of ripe melons and white peaches, Dry Creek Vineyards' 2018 edition is a nicely filled Chenin Blanc that, while dry, consistently conveys so much persistent fruit that it intimates a sensation of jui...

This wine comes from a vineyard located in the Southern-eastern hills near the city of Ukiah. Planted in the mid-1970s on a gentle slope in Pinole gravelly loam soils, the old Chenin Blanc vines yield tiny, beautifully concentrated berries - thus the name Peaberry. According to the winery, the grapes were picked on September 19th at 20.3 Brix. The grapes were whole - cluster pressed to tank for cold settling. Then juice was racked to neutral French oak and Acacia barrels for fermentation using spontaneous yeast. The wine was aged for five months and comp...

KL Notes: Craig Haarmeyer is a third generation Sacramenten who has been responsible for coining the term "Sacramento Terroir".

90 points Vinous: "The 2019 Kloof Street Chenin Blanc underwent a natural ferment with minimal SO2 addition. It has a knockout bouquet for an entry-level Chenin, featuring beautiful orange blossom and apricot scents mixed with hints of lemon thyme. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and impressive tension and energy. Poised all the way through to the finish, this is a superb Kloof Street Chenin Blanc that serves as a perfect introduction to Chris and Andrea Mullineux’s wines. (NM)" (11/2019)
Price: $19.99


Winemaker's Notes; "The 2019 takes its charms from the slightly richer vintage, and a relatively small crop. A touch of botrytis in 2019 also lends additional texture and presents a deceptively honeyed and pear-like expression of the variety. A suggestion of mandarin blossom and a resurgent, dry, almost electric finish recalls wet stone, and the quartz and limestone soils that help make this ungrafted Late Disco Era site next-level delicious. After harvest in the middle of the night, we let the fruit sit overnight and pressed the next day at lunchtime. A...

From Importer Neal Rosenthal: "While the Moelleux Reserve is produced only a few times a decade, the Goutte d’Or is produced only a few times a century. Made only under the choicest conditions, the Goutte d’Or is a beacon of perfection. In the 94 years that the Foreau family have been producing wine, there have been only four vintages with conditions favorable enough to produce this high-water mark: 1947, 1990, 2011, and 2015. Carrying 170 grams of sugar, the Goutte d’Or is incredibly elegant at this early point. The fruit is sweet, the color a vibrant ...

Born into a winemaking family in Anjou, Pithon’s career as a vintner began in 1978 when he established his domaine. Pithon has significantly contributed to the recognition of the dry white wines of the Loire Valley as well as the lesser-known Anjou appellation by producing high-quality dry Chenin Blanc from the area, which was known chiefly for sweet wines. He also promoted organic farming, indigenous yeast strains and refraining from chaptalization or acidification, as well as the Burgundian approach of single-plot selections and barrel aging.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing aromas of sweet white flowers, quince, and minerals, the Coteaux du Layon Clos de Ste. Catherine is a thick, unctuous, amazingly sweet and creamy full-bodied wine. Layers of almond extract, fresh red currants and sweetened herbal tea are found in its lively and tightly wound personality. Superbly balanced and admirably long, this harmonious wine has the ability to age for over 20 years in an adequate cellar. Drink it between 1999-2025. (PR)" (10/1997)

This 100% Chenin Blanc comes from the nearly 40-year-old Saini Vineyard. Winery tasting notes: "This wine has alluring weight and richness, a silky texture and subtle aromas of Chamomile, orchard fruits and lemon confit. The palate offers a medley of Lanolin, white pepper and tea notes, as well as hints of straw that carry through to a lingering almost salty finish."

In Santa Ynez, the Jurassic Park Vineyard sits at 335 meters elevation on sandy, well-drained limestone-laden soils atop the playground of the dinosaurs of the Jurassic era. Planted in 1978, the age of this un-grafted Chenin vineyard qualifies it as "old" in Southern California. They treat it gently, ferment it with native yeasts, and keep it company through the winter. Each vintage shows them a new dimension and a new potential expression of this place. Winery note: "This sandy, rocky dinosaur boneyard vineyard has rapidly become one of the more sought-...

About this producer: "Winemaker Nathan Kandler stands firmly by his belief that the winemaker's ultimate mission is to translate the voice of the soil into the glass. But not all vineyards are created equal, and here enters Nathan's keen eye for finding the magical combination of variety, climate and soil.

Winemaker's Notes: "Our inaugural release from this block of own-rooted vines planted 1978. My original intent was to bottle a 100% Skin Fermented Chenin as the 2nd bottling in our XB series but tasting in the cellar I preferred the 50/50 blend. The acidity from the white wine Chenin both brightened the palate and gave a lift to the "orange" aromatics that I felt enhanced their intensity. In bottle, the wine shows the explosive aromatics of a skin ferment but remains nimble and energetic on the palate."

Winery notes: Chenin Blanc has a long and storied history on Pritchard Hill. The original vines were already producing when Donn and Molly purchased the property in the late 1960s. Following a replanting in 2004, Chenin Blanc was reintroduced as a "Signature" designation with a twist. While the Signature Cabernet bear Donn Chappellet’s name, Molly Chappellet’s signature graces the Chenin Blanc label. To add depth and complexity, this Chenin Blanc was fermented in a combination of neutral French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. This sophisticated ex...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Nicolas Joly "Clos de la Coulée de Serrant" Savennières-Coulée de Serrant (93W&S). Wine & Spirits: "This historic clos is widely considered one of the greatest vineyards in the Loire: 17.2 acres on a steep hillside above the river where the vines average 35 years of age, some older than 80. Joly farms it and vinifies the wine under a biodynamic regime, and sure, the wine might be more accessible if it were cleaner. For those who can live with the idiosyncrasies of a "vin naturel," this is among the most evocative and complex. It is, first and foremost, a lovely Savenièrres, true to the appellation. Beyond that, you’ll find a layering of wildflower honey and more delicate notes of meadow flowers infusing a deep golden wine. It’s luscious, juicy, savory and tense, a 2010 suited to five or six years of age and a terrine of foie gras." (04/2013)
