Producer: François Chidaine (Biodynamic)
Region: Loire Valley
Wine: 2017 Montlouis Clos Habert (1.45% residual - Sold Out)
From a parcel located at the top of the appellation, just on the line where the Silex (flint) gives way to broken chalk and clay. 60-90 year old vines have roots that plunge deep into the limestone bedrock bringing up nutrients that are unique to this site. Always vinified in a demi-sec style, Clos Habert is probably Chidaine's most prestigious site. The wine shows notes of honey, lichee and citrus in the nose which lead into a wine which, although possesses residual sugar, comes across the palate with delicate, but unctuous precision leaving a trail of crystalline minerals, exotic fruits and a big smile. Drunk young or old, the Clos Habert will change your mind about most everything you've felt heretofore about wine...
