  • Francois Chidaine Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Francois Chidaine Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2018

    $31.00in any six

    $35.00 per single bottle

    Born from incredibly low yields of intensely flavoured berries, the 2018 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc is a very strong vintage from Francois Chidaine. It combines a mouthful of fleshy ripe fruit with bracing freshness. There is also plenty of complexity from wild fermentation and lees ageing. The depth of flavour and interest here is very impressive […]

    Francois Chidaine Vin de France le Chenin d’Ailleurs 2016

    $39.00in any six

    $42.00 per single bottle

    This great value, lip-smacking, crystalline Chenin from the southern soils of the Limoux region (more famous for its sparkling wines), is made in the spirit of Montlouis. A more racy, juicy and playful style than this grower’s northern Chenin, yet it remains classically detailed and pure, with teasing aromas of ripe citrus, yellow plum and […]

    $54.00 per single bottle

    Disgorged March 2017 with zero dosage. Made entirely from old-vine, biodynamically farmed fruit, from hand harvested vines cropped at a very low 35 hectolitres per hectare. Wild fermented in old 600 litre barrels. Fresh and vivid, this Montlouis non-dosé is 100% Chenin Blanc from the flinty (les perruches) sites of Le Volagray and Les Landes, […]

    $63.00in any six

    $68.00 per single bottle

    This much-loved 100% Chenin Blanc is made from late harvested grapes from a range of Chidaine’s old Chenin plots – including the Clos du Volagray, Saint-Martin and Grillonnieres – sites that have stony soils and are heavy in yellow limestone (or tuffeaux). These vines range in age from 30-90 years and are always cropped at […]

    $72.00in any six

    $77.00 per single bottle

    This vineyard’s soil is composed of deep clays and white chalk. The subsoil is made of Tuffeau – a soft, white limestone rock through which the roots carve a passage. 100% Chenin Blanc, the vineyard is driven biodynamically – soils are ploughed, organically fertilised, and honey plants and nematicides are sown in the rows. After […]

    This exceptional RD has been resting ‘sur latte’ for ten years, and was disgorged in 2015, with no dosage. What a bargain! If this was champagne it would be 5 times the price. The nose is an incredible display of wild mushrooms, marshmallow, honey and quince. Despite the age it is extremely fresh but with […]

    $73.00in any six

    $84.00 per single bottle

    This has a simply charming nose, very open in style, tangerine fruit marked with minerally veins. The palate shows a little hint of an incisive character at the start, before it relaxes to reveal a broad seam of pithy tangerine, apple and peach fruit. An undeniably ripe style, with tight central seams of chalky mineral […]

    $84.00 per single bottle

    This much-loved 100% Chenin Blanc is drawn from the second, later pickings from a range of Chidaine’s old Chenin plots – including the Clos du Volagray, Saint-Martin and Les Grillonnières – sites that have stony soils, heavy in yellow limestone (or tuffeaux). These vines range in age from 30-90 years and are always cropped at […]

    Unlike most of Montlouis, which is on clay and flint, this four hectare vineyard (planted in 1998) lies on a pocket of clay and Bournais limestone, the stone from which it takes its name. It’s a beautiful site, certainly one of Montlouis’ finest. Chidaine’s vinification here is exactly the same as his Clos de Breuil […]

    With an average yield across the domaine of just 5-6hl/ha, only two Vouvray’s were made in 2016. The lion’s share was picked very ripe and collated into this (sublime) cuvée. The residual finished somewhere in the 20-30g/lt range, yet the weightlessness and energy here makes the wine seem like a ripe and luscious, yet almost […]

    $105.00 per single bottle

    This has a beautifully pure style on the nose, reminiscent of dessert apples and pears, showing a sweeter and more confident vein. The palate is fresh, laden with polished fruit character, intertwined with gentle acids and minerals, wrapped within a cushion of soft and sweet fruit. This is convincing, pure, vibrant and flavoursome, but it […]
