Another personal fave, this is a parcellary selection from Montlouis to feature the more silex dominant parcels. It is a bottling that has managed to fly relatively under the radar even for those familiar with the estate. Get some, and thank me later…….this is the same bottling that I had offered last year, as it seems that he hasn’t yet moved onto the 2019…..
“Blended from different plots with silex soils. Very elegant on the nose, offering apple and pear plus hints of pepper, smoke, crushed stone and honey. Lithe and lean in the mouth, featuring underripe apricot and pear, bright acids and tons of minerality.” 94 points Jason Wilson
“The 2018 Montlouis Choisilles is a blend from the Les Epinais, La Taille aux Loups and Clos au Renard lieu-dits. Dry and bracing in the glass, with tremendous energy, the Choisilles is beautifully delineated, with sweet floral notes and bright acids that round things out so well. Citrus confit, white flowers, chamomile and crushed rocks lead into the sculpted finish.” 93 Antonio Galloni
