Francois Chidaine Les Choisilles Montlouis 2017

Product Description

This cuvée is named after a type of black flint called Choisilles, abundant in the old vine parcels that gift this wine. The main vineyards involved are Les Epinais, La Taille aux Loups and Clos Renard, where the bedrock is tuffeau and the vines range between 30 to 90 years. This is a much more racy, juicy and tangy contrast to the Clos du Breuil's more layered and fleshy expression of Montlouis. 

"This has a more minerally confidence than Les Bournais Franc de Pieds, tasted alongside, with a mineral-dusted apple and pear aromatic profile. The palate shows a generous substance, with a soft, supple and open layer of salt-dusted apple and pear fruits, showing a confident sweetness, all wrapped around a central core of minerality and acidity. It is charming, broad, open and richly styled, but convincingly dry in its taste. Very good potential here." 92-94 points, Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com
