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 a tiny yield. The ’15 is a ravishing, tangy wine loaded with Seville marmalade, lemon curd and fresh ginger. So spicy and generous, yet finishing dry and punchy with a lick of limestone. Impossible to stop drinking, the interplay between juicy sweet fruit and vibrant freshness is a wonder to behold.
