    (François Chidaine Montlouis Les Tuffeaux) This is a non-site specific cuvée, taking fruit from across all sites, usually gently sec tendre to demi-sec or thereabouts, in this vintage it is firmly demi-sec at 19 g/l residual sugar. A lovely purity here, on the nose a very mineral and expressive style, although it is subtle and approachable, and on the palate it has a very fine expression. Finely balanced, with great minerality too. Supple, poised and defined though. Somewhat tighter and more reserved than the Clos Habert. This is very good indeed.

    (François Chidaine Montlouis Les Tuffeaux) This is a non-site specific cuvée, taking fruit from across all sites, usually gently sec tendre to demi-sec or thereabouts, in this vintage firmly demi-sec at 19 g/l residual sugar. White fruits and flowers on the nose, typical young Chenin Blanc, presented in an ethereal fashion. The wines itself is a model of restraint on the palate compared with the evocative Clos Habert, its fine core of acidity building firmly in the midpalate giving it a great vigour, but without so much exuberant aroma. Good purity though, lovely citrus and cream and mineral elements on the palate, a vigorous finish, and great length. This is a wine of beauty.
