About

Product Description:

Produced from equal amounts of Cot, Cabernet Franc & Pinot d’Aunis. From 100% estate biodynamically farmed vines located just north of the Cher river near the villages of Montrichard & Chissay-en Tourainne, this is a very promising wine. Known primarily for making some of the greatest white wines in the Loire region, Chidaine has been farming these vineyards for several years. Good dark concentration of fruit where neither varietal dominates, but rather complements the others. The faintly mineral nose shows notes of pepper melded with the red fruit and leads into a wine with medium tannins, good concentration and length. Not a heavy wine, it has plenty of character, and bright acidity, which makes it a classic food wine to go with difficult pairings.
