Variety: Chenin Blanc
Francois and Manuéla are a husband and wife operation based in both Montlouis and Vouvray located in the central Loire Valley. In a region that produced bulk wine for years, particularly after WWII, the Chidaine duo brought an emphasis to wines of quality and regenerative farming; they also look to natural winemaking. One of their largest goals is to look to the future, “an effort to save the world.” Chidaine’s household wines are varying styles of Chenin Blanc from dry to off-dry to sparkling. Their inspired lineup includes classic reds and whites from the Loire made into vibrant, juicy styles ranging in price points. Their momentum only continues as they seek to better the world around them.
Baudoin is the name of this famed vineyard from the appellation of Vouvray. The vines are 60 years in age and made into one of the Chidaine's driest wines. The wine does not bear the Vouvray appellation, but rather a Vin de France designation because the wine is not cellared in the same village its grown. Nonetheless, it is still "Vouvray."
