Thierry?s reds have garnered most of the attention, but his pure Chenin Blancs are certainly worthy of press as well. In line w/ his explosively fragrant Cabernet Francs, this young Chenin exudes a perfumed of green tea, paraffin, ginger, baked apples and quince. There is an easy generosity to the ripe fruit in the mouth that I adored immediately. While the wine is currently forward & almost lavish for a young Chenin, the finish hints at an imbedded stoniness to come w/ additional bottle age. Could use a touch more length, but is still an excellent expression for a young white Loire.
