From the former Poniatowski Vouvray estate, this is his blended site Vouvray example. Like all things Chidaine, it is a year in and year out sure bet qualitatively. Antonio’s review is damn appetizing to me….
“The 2018 Montlouis Les Argiles is bright, finely cut and remarkably nuanced. White orchard fruit, chalk, mint and white pepper give the Argiles a striking aromatic upper register. The Argiles, which emerges from clay-rich soils, impresses more with energy than the breadth I expected. Perhaps that will develop in bottle. This chiseled, finely-cut Chenin has a ton to offer. Bright saline notes punctuate the finish.” 94 Antonio Galloni for the 2018, NOT THE 2019 OFFERED HERE.
