Francois Chidaine Montlouis Les Bournais Franc de Pied 2014

24 bottles shipped. Due to this cuvée’s rarity we haven’t had the chance to taste it. Indeed we had to beg and plead to get an allocation at all. It derives from a tiny parcel (0.2 of a hectare) of ungrafted vines in Les Bournais. At best we’ll have 23 bottles spare!...

“It feels no less minerally than the grafted vines, bit with a greater sense of harmony and polish to it. A substantial white stone character, with lightly honeyed minerals, a herbal touch to it as well. A very fine palate, with an appealing pithy sense to the fruit, and a broad and fine substance. Rich and yet also tense, with some real energy here, more so than the grafted cuvée I think. Nevertheless, two very exciting wines.”
17.5/20 Points Chris Kissack, www.thewinedoctor.com


** Producteur de trés grande qualité Le Classement 2013 (The highest rated producer in Montlouis)
“You have to look to the historical collections of regional leaders Foreau and Huet to find comparable consistently high quality, making it clear that Chidaine is one of the world's finest craftsmen in the medium of white wine, not to mention a continuing source of amazing value.”
David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate
 
“François Chidaine is one of my favorite winemakers in the world. There are times when I can imagine drinking only his wines for the rest of my life.” Peter Liem, peterliem.com
