Birichino cheninblanc

Chenin Blanc 2016

Birichino

This is very proper in texture, perfume, length and vivacity. It has taken its own sweet time coming around, but the early, edgy nervousness has now just the right amount of verve. And if we ever doubted the dogma that extended hang time can benefit flavor development, we doubt no longer. This is hardly the richest wine we have made from Jurassic Park, but it is certainly persistent at this stage of evolution, and will likely prove to be the most long lived – in bottle, and in the songs of winemaking troubadours.
