“Nicolas’s 2017 Coteaux du Loir Vieilles Vignes Eparses exhibits an intense yellow-golden color along with beautiful ripe and overripe mirabelle, honey, wax and white-chocolate aromas intertwined with discreet earthy and flinty notes. Silky and gentle on the seamless palate, with concentration, salt and finesse, this is a rich and intense, full-bodied yet elegant and finely mineral Chenin from vines up to 90 years old. The wine is concentrated and dry as well as fresh and sustainably salty and reveals some fine tannins. I’d cellar this 2017 for another couple of years, since it seems to be in a bit of a valley today. 12.5% alcohol. Tasted in May 2021. Drink: 2025-2035. 92+ points”
