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.
Following the lackluster vintage of 2018, the Chidaines outsourced Chenin to make this wine. The wine is made in the traditional method where it’s aged on the lees for six months and then an additional 12 months in bottle before its release. This Brut Nature has no sugar added and showcases the versatility of this variety, even during a difficult vintage.
