92pts (2019 Vintage) Wine Advocate 10/31/2019
The 2019 JI JI JI Chenin Blanc is very different from previous vintages. To start with, the grapes come from their own vineyard planted in 2015 in Gualtallary. The wine has achieved 12.5% alcohol, and the acidity is limited to a moderate 6.8 grams (tartaric), looking for freshness, without malolactic. They did some skin contact, so the wine has a bright golden color, a varietal nose with good ripeness and still the electric and vibrant palate that has always been the trademark of this wine. It feels like the teenager has matured and is now a full-grown adult. "
