Today I had this superb wine from Montlouis sur Loire in Touraine district in Loire region. Quite gold in color not really clear and lucid with a complexity viscosity. The nose was youthful but to use an oximoron was developing... note of honey, mushroom, candid citrus character, ripe yellow fruit good balance with a present acidity musk by some residual sugar. Petrol nose, flinty and limestone some undertone of charcoal. Mouthful with deep length and complexity… Need some age to show is best but great chenin blanc.. Outstanding
