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 is a very rare special bottle coming from the Chidaine lineup. Every so often, the vintage allows for a good harvest where the wines can be botrytised, otherwise known as a late harvest Vouvray wine. “Rive Droite” means the right bank. This wine has been aging for 13 years in the cellar; the time is now to drink this golden sweet nectar.
