|Producer: François Chidaine (Biodynamic)|
|Region: Loire Valley|
|Wine: 2010 Montlouis Clos Habert (1.5% residual)|
|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...|
