    (François Chidaine Vouvray Le Bouchet) This cuvée is generally sweet, demi-sec or moelleux, and is sourced from 50-year old vines on clay-limestone terroirs. In this vintage it has 19 g/l residual sugar. Very fresh and open in terms of style, with a touch of aniseed and liquorice here, also fennel maybe. It has a lovely style, soft and supple, polished off with oak, although there is a fine substance and depth to it as well. There are polished and golden-honey fruits, giving the wine a very supple style, delicious and rather caressing. Underneath a fine core of acid. Impressive.

    (François Chidaine Vouvray Le Bouchet) This cuvée is generally sweet, demi-sec or moelleux, and is sourced from 50-year old vines on clay-limestone terroirs. A fresh and ethereal character on the nose, citrus and cream, and a much firmer style than the two Montlouis demi-secs in this vintage. Notes of stone, lightly sprinkled with flower petals. Firm, beautifully textured, vibrant and tingly. A vigorous wine with wonderful character and great potential.
