  1. Francois Chidaine Montlouis Sur Loire Clos Habert 2017
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer notes: From a parcel located at the top of the appellation, just on the line where the Silex (flint) gives way to broken chalk and clay. 60-90 year old vines have roots that plunge deep into the limestone bedrock bringing up nutrients that are unique to this site. Always vinified in a demi-sec style, Clos Habert is probably Chidaine's most prestigious site. The wine shows notes of honey, lichee and citrus in the nose which lead into a wine which, although possesses residual sugar, comes across the palate with delicate, but unctuous precision leaving a trail of crystalline minerals, exotic fruits and a big smile. Drunk young or old, the Clos Habert will change your mind about most everything you've felt heretofore about wine... Learn More
  2. Francois Chidaine Montlouis Sur Loire Les Tuffeaux 2017
    $31.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer notes: The domaine bottling is derived from bunches left to hang on all parcels of the estate. Always vinified in a demi-sec style, it shows unctuous notes of citrus, exotic fruits and honey in the nose that lead into a wine with excellent, fresh acidity and good length that really coats the palate.

  3. Francois Chidaine Montlouis Sur Loire Les Bournais 2017
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer notes: A few years back François told us that he had just planted what he thought would one day be his greatest vineyard. A small parcel on the edge of the the Montlouis plateau looking out over the Loire. Les Bournais is the only parcel in Montlouis to posses the classic soil components that Vouvray is so famous for; solid limestone bedrock, covered with chalky limestone chunks and clay. A few years have passed since the first vintage was produced (2008), and it is becoming very clear that François' prediction has proved correct. The wine from this vineyard invariably shows that classic balance between mineral and acid tension backing up fleshy, forward fruit aromatics. The wines age incredibly well thus far, even from young vines. This is very classy wine. Learn More
  4. Francois Chidaine Montlouis Sur Loire Les Choisilles 2017
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer notes: Les Choisilles is an estate blend of bunches left to hang longer than usual in the various Montlouis vineyards, but nonetheless vinified dry. They are in fact grapes from the same lot as Les Tuffeaux, but picked in earlier passes. The nose is somewhat more tropical than the other dry bottlings, with some truffle, candied citrus peel and quince paste. Quite full in the mouth, it nonetheless possesses bracing acidity and good minerality that goes on and on... Learn More
  5. Francois Chidaine Montlouis Sur Loire Clos du Breuil 2017
    $31.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer notes: From a single vineyard parcel on one of the highest points in the appellation. The soils here are comprised of silex (flint) and a small amount of clay over limestone bedrock. Always vinified dry, this is one of the purest expressions of Montlouis that one can find. Plenty of minerals, pear and some quince in the nose, the acidity is crisp and intense giving way to a full wine that opens up over the palate leaving more quince and river rock sensations.
