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.
This may very well be the flagship wine of Chidaine. The Chenin is vinified into a dry fresh style, showcasing the potential of this grape variety. Clos du Breuil is known to be one of the classiest Chenins in the region. The wine is aged in both steel and small barrels with a racy, minerally intensity.
