Grape - Chenin Blanc Country - France Region - Montlouis
Situated across the river Loire from its larger and more famous neighbour Vouvray, Montlouis is effectively a mirror of Vouvray, with similar soil types and equally capable of producing dazzling Chenin Blanc. The quirks of history and fashion have not been kind to Montlouis, however these were once esteemed vines - as far back as 500 year ago when Francois I entertained key figures of the renaissance including Leonardo da Vinci at the nearby Château d'Amboise. The talented Ludovic Chanson established this estate in 2009, just 5000 bottles of this wonderful barrel fermented Chenin are produced. Complex and delicate, this is everything you want from Loire Chenin with driving acid, tangerine zest, preserved mandarin and lovely weight on the palate, multi layered and complex.
