Juicy and fine-grained, with piquant acidity framing the lemon and mineral flavors. In spite of its enormous depth, this chenin blanc literally dances across the palate. Pure, crisp and very long on the finish, I prefer this to the richer 2011. Only bottled earlier this year, this Saumur will be released sometime in late 2015. If it develops like the 2010, it has the potential to be one of the great white wines of the vintage. -- Joel B. Payne
