One hundred percent Chenin Blanc from Vouvray although it's labelled as Vin de France, because François Chidaine transports the fruit across the river to Montlouis for vinification. Chidaine is considered one of the pinnacle white producers in the Loire Valley. The fruit is sourced from multiple sites around Clos Baudoin, which are occupied by forty year old bush vines. His attention to detail translates directly into the bottle. Multiple passes of hand harvesting in the vineyard are made and the pristine fruit is aged in large vats as not to impart flavour, but to mellow the racing acidity. It's a mid-weight style of white, which is really versatile and satisfying. Could easily sit in the cellar for a few years and age elegantly.
