Francois Chidaine Les Tuffeaux Montlouis 2017

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 a tiny yield. Always one of our favourite Chidaine wines, the 2017 is as fleshy, seductive and packed with personality as always. Grab some!

I get plenty of stony peach and apricot fruit on the nose, the wine clearly displaying a ripe profile. This comes with notes of chalky minerals, the overall effect very fresh and poised. The palate follows up with a wealth of orange, tangerine and peach fruit, all finely expressed, and wrapped up in a fresh frame of gentle minerals and acidity. Charming, but understated, although the energy is undeniable. And it has a long finish, with a good bite. Overall, impressive potential. 93-95 points, Chris Kissack,
