|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Pineapple, mango, raisin, honey, nutmeg. Sweet but not overpowering. I'd love to just have this with some plain vanilla ice cream, or some churros and caramel.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Heady and saturated aromas of honey, honeysuckle, rose and high octane. Lovely and mouthfilling apricot, honey, candied citrus peel with a nip of tangerine acidity and a faint hint of botrytus. Try this with a peach crisp - use a light hand with the sugar or semi-firm cheeses. Tasted November 2018
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Luscious, aromas include nectarine, peach and sweet oranges kissed with honey. Velvety and full bodied on the palate, with a lovely balance of fruit and honey. Enjoy with baked brie, a walnut encrusted cheese ball, or a fruit tart.
|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This decadent wine opens up with peach and candied lemon on the palate, and clearly gives away its forthcoming sweetness. The palate does not disappoint, with ripe stone fruit and lemon curd and a satisfying fullness in the mouth. There is just enough acidity to prevent the wine from being cloying, Perfect pairing for sweet lemon tarts or crème brûlée.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Delicious dessert wine at an amazing value! This goodie was crafted from Chenin Blanc grapes in the Loire Valley. Aroma and flavours show intense beeswax and citrus marmalade. Enjoy with toasted nut and raspberry topped baked brie. Tasted Nov '18 by @sommsosa.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Pretty tart apricot marmalade aromas, with addition of peach and lemon meringue pie on luscious, satiny palate. Enjoy with creme caramel.

|Pam Hatton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Marmalade and Seville oranges with restrained floral notes and a touch of botrytis. Sweet but not cloying with a tight finish. Lovely honey and marmalade and stone fruit on the palate. Would pair well with lemon desserts.
|Château La Varière 2016 is a zesty Chenin Blanc from the Loire wine region. Peach and pink grapefruit aromas with lemon curd and linear acidity. Fresh finish. This vintage was awarded Silver in the 2017 International Wine Challenge, 2017 - Community Wine Reviews|
