Francois Chidaine Les Bournais Montlouis 2017

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 needs to shake off a lot of this sugar before we see its true style. 93-95 points, Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com

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. It’s a beautiful site, certainly one of Montlouis’ finest. Chidaine’s vinification here is exactly the same as his Clos de Breuil and Les Choisilles. The grapes are hand harvested and undergo natural fermentation for 11 months on fine lees. However, this is an altogether more ‘Vouvray’ expression of Montlouis. Les Bournais has a powdery, chalky structure that so clearly reflects its soils and location.
