Pichot Clos Cartaud Vouvray 2020 (Chenin Blanc)
Now this is something special – leveling up from the Pichot in month one. Only 3000 bottles made and only in the best years when the quality is good enough. Super excited to have secured some.
Nose immediately draws you in – feels like there’s so much packed in – I’m getting excited!!
On the palate WOW – straight up amazing texture – super tight knit on the palate with soft round edges even with the formidable acid poised/ready to attack throughout. Freaking hell – this is what I’m talking about. Almost like there’s a layer on lemon hidden behind a protective layer of glycerin so as not to overwhelm the palate. I live for exciting wines like this – good Chenin Blanc can take us outside the realm of our everyday varieties and really gives something more exciting and meaningful. Crisp, refreshing and soft place to fall all at the same time – glass keeps calling you to take another sip.
