rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Saumur, Secrets De Chai Par Eric Laurent, composed of 100% Chenin Blanc aged for 8 months on lees, has intense aromas of pear, gooseberry, subdued minerality and floral notes. It is a medium bodied,dry, fruity wine; with checked acidity and a medium, fruit forward finish. Drink on its own; drink now – 2018+. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted at 'Loire Valley Tasting' http://grapeselections.com/Loire-Valley-tasting/ in Oct/13.

Gold Medal winner at the 2012 Concours de Mâcon. Juicy secrets are more fun when they are shared, and we’re dying to let this one out of the bag. 100% Chenin Blanc, this will reveal floral, apple, citrus, pear, nuts and a lovely classic waxy note on the nose. The palate is lovely, with more apple and pear and a superbly integrated acidity. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012
