    (François Chidaine Montlouis Clos Habert Demi-Sec) The soils here are limestone, the vines 60 years old, and the wine usually a demi-sec, in this vintage true to form with residual sugar sitting at 12.1 g/l. The yield is lower than some at 29 hl/ha. The fruit character has evolved into citrus and peach on the nose, a wonderfully vibrant and creamy wine, a swirl of mango and mineral. A gliding, elegant palate, lots of interest here. A very balanced form, the acidity enhancing the finesse and harmony of the wine. This is very supple, restrained, with complex fruits as on the nose, and a good length too. Great wine.

    (François Chidaine Montlouis Clos Habert) This has 15 g/l residual sugar. A really lovely nose here, full of white pepper and pears, and ripe stone fruit. There is a fine palate to follow, soft, gentle and minerally; it doesn't have the grip of the preceding wines, but there is a fine and broad substance beneath. Full bodied and substantial, with a slightly bitter finish, this is really very good indeed.
