2020 François Chidaine Montlouis-sur-Loire 'Les Bournais - Sec,' Montlouis
SKU: 2020-FRANC-MONTRegular price $45.95
Second generation estate located in Montlouis, run by the dymanic couple, François and Manuela Chidaine. For years Chidaine has been a leader in natural viticulture, farming organically and biodynamically. Les Bournais, a vineyard Chidaine refers to as "a magical place" was planted vines here in 1999. Bournais refers to the particular type of limestone found in the area. Chidaine’s goal is to vinify this dry( barring the occasional aberration such as 2005) and the result is a powerful, full-bodied wine, probably the closest to Vouvray in profile of all Chidaine’s Montlouis wines.
