TN: 2019 Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Blanc

#1 Post by Sean S y d n e y »

Already showing so, so well! Couldn't resist opening it, and I'm so glad I did; lovely pure Chenin character, lightly waxy and ever so slightly honeyed, crushed white flowers, white peach, some flintiness, and that inscrutable crystalline quality Chenin always gives me. So elegant. Beautiful balance and acid, glides over the palate.

Damn, man! You're finding the 2019 already?! It couldn't have been more than 3 months ago when I took delivery of the '18s I bought. Thanks for the note. [cheers.gif]

Thank you for sharing this! I love this producer's whites and will certainly be on the lookout for this.

Admittedly they just arrived in our market a couple weeks ago and I'm always on record as wanting some!
