Francois Chidaine Les Bournais Montlouis Sur Loire 2020, 0.75L

Region: Montlouis sur Loire, Loire, France
Varietal: Chenin Blanc
Classification:
Importer: Beaune Imports
Score: 92VM
Review: "The 2020 Les Bournais is a silky, seductive wine that retains a sense of shape despite its ripeness. The appellation of Montlouis has lots of clay-flint, but this is clay-chalk, and the result is a round yet focused style with fine length and line. The barrel fermentation and maturation (just 10% new) doesn't impart any flavor but adds to the roundness and gives support to the wine. Fully dry, you can expect ripe apple, pear and a gentle lick of sweet brioche on the medium-long length. Sourced from clay-limestone soil. Drink: 2022-2034."
