Francois Chidaine Vouvray Les Argiles Sec, Loire, France 2017

Regular price $ 29.40

The 2017 les Argiles is also not listed as a Sec on the front label, though this information can be found on the back label. The bouquet is excellent, offering up scents of pink grapefruit, orange peel, chalky minerality, a touch of beeswax and a gentle topnote of the honeycomb to come with further bottle age. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and rock solid at the core, with excellent acids and grip, lovely balance and a long, nascently complex and very classy finish. François Chidaine remains one of my favorite producers in the central Loire and his 2017 les Argiles is top flight juice.
