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. 

Moelleux, pronounced “mull-yu” is a beautiful style of Chenin done in a style that is purposefully sweet. Harvest is a process as the Chenin requires multiple passes through the vineyards to pick the fruit that has experienced the sought after noble rot. The wine is bottled with about 22 grams of residual sugar, though the presence of the natural acidity in the Chenin balances the wine. It is wine destined for fruit-based desserts and custard tarts, or even a beautiful fromage selection.
