"Captivating, with a lively quinine streak leading the way, followed by Jonagold apple, honeysuckle, green almond and plantain notes that race through the pure, mineral-driven finish. Intense, with enough in reserve to warrant cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2020. WineAccess tasting notes -- The 2009 Clos du Papillon is brilliant golden to the edge, infused with pungent aromas of poached pear, nectarine, white peach, and smoke. Rich, weighty, and almost chewy on the palate, the ripe apple/pear/honey opulence is brightened by lemon-rind vibrancy. Fabulously mineral and impressive for its length and persistence, like all the warm vintages of this world-class Chenin Blanc, this 2009 is drinking beautifully out of the gate, but will continue to add weight and complexity over the next 20 years."
