This sweet Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley in France so no signs of ageing at all. Light yellow/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has pears, honey, white peaches, with a bit of crushed shells and salinity. Full bodied. Slightly viscous. On the palate, this is sweet but just a bit, certainly not cloying. Good acidity. The honey, peaches and and minerality come thru. A very long finish. This wine is deep and stops the drinker in his or her tracks. It drinks great on its own and might be harder to match with food. A not too sweet shortbread cookie or a soft goat cheese would work well. This seemingly has another decade or two to go.
