"The wine has lovely fresh tropical fruit aromas that flow onto a crisp fresh palate. There is a perfect balance between the acidity and fruit, which gives this wine great length and intensity. It will pair well with seafood, especially shellfish, chicken dishes and spicy Thai style food." - Broadbent
2013 Hope Marguerite
"Every now and then we have an unusual vintage that just expresses itself in its full intensity. 2013 is one of these with lovely fruit flavours that mask the oak to the point where you hardly notice it. A little higher residual sugar coats that palate and give the wine lots of length and depth." - Broadbent
2013 Cuvee de Fondraux
Chenin Blanc from vines averaging 45 years of age. Harvest happens early in the morning for the Fondraux and the grapes are immediately pressed. The juice in then transferred into 500 L wooden barrels for a slow fermentation. The wine is aged in the same vessel on its lees for eleven months before bottling.
2007 Clos Papillon
100% Chenin Blanc. Closel has been certified in organic viticulture by Ecocert since 2006. Everything about this wine suggests "golden." Pale gold in color, a very waxy, honeyed nose dripping with ripe pear & golden apple. Dry, medium bodied, rich round flavors offset by nervy acidity. This a legendary wine, from one of the top sites in Savennières, so named because the plot’s shape resembles a butterfly. Amazing aging potential.
100% Chenin Blanc. 112 cases produced. Medium pale gold. Fresh cantaloupe nose that gradulally evolves to a greener honeydew. Rich, warm, full & concnetrated.subtly tropical.
2002 Demi-sec, 1er Trie
1,000-1,500 cases produced annually. 100% Chenin Blanc, certified biodynamic. "Bright gold. Talc, orange zest, pear and white flowers on the nose, along with a touch of pungent herbs. Tangy, finely wrought citrus flavors are given depth and texture by notes of floral honey and bitter pear skin, with a hint of tarragon emerging on the back of the palate. Slow to unfold, but finishes with excellent clarity, lift and persistence. Like 2009 and 2005, 2002 is one of the great vintages here - a year when it was possible to produce all styles at a high level of quality." - 92pts Vinous
2011 Jurassic Vineyard "The Steen"
"This is a supple, texturally driven expression of Chenin Blanc that highlights Jurassic’s sophisticated notes of wet stone and chalky minerality, as well as its alluring elements of honeysuckle, white peach, orange blossom and fresh hay. On the palate it is dry, plush and appealing, with good weight and understated acidity. Decanting is recommended." Planted in 1982, the sustainably farmed Jurassic Vineyard in Santa Ynez Valley is situated on rolling hills at an elevation of approximately 1,100 feet. The vineyard takes its name from the site’s fossil-rich soils. These well-drained, limestone-laden sandy soils produce small vines and clusters. Jurassic’s own-rooted Chenin Blanc vines produce a beautifully textured wine with abundant minerality and exotic fruit.
