2017 Francois Chidaine Vouvray Les Argiles

Loire Valley, France

40 year old bush vines grown on deep, chalky clay over limestone. A vibrant mouthful of pure, ripe spiced lemon and orchard fruit mingling with piercingly fresh acidity and minerality. A charming and delicate style. Match with scallops.

  • Loire Valley, France

    "Montlouis-sur-Loire", cradle of Domaine François Chidaine which today extends over 37 hectares. The vineyards that flourish in more than fifty plots have been conducted in organic farming since 1992, and biodynamic since 1999. They are rooted sometimes on flinty clay soils sometimes on clay-limestone soils that transmit to Grapes a palette of nuances. The remaining 7 hectares are dominated by Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Grolleau, Cabernet Franc, Côt and Pineau d'Aunis varieties a little further east of the Cher Valley under the Touraine appellation.
