Loire Valley

Ludovic Chanson "Les Cabotines" Chenin Blanc '16

One of the great young stars of the Loire Valley, Ludovic Chanson has produced an insanely delicious Chenin Blanc from his vineyards in the Montlouis-sur-Loire appellation. With just 6.2 hectares of vineyards, and a loyal clientele in France, these are wines that we simply don't get a lot of.

Chanson's importer Selection Massale notes "Les Cabotines comes from Chenin Blanc vines planted in Montlouis’ classic, austere terroir of poor clay soils with silex, pebbles, and flint. These grapes are harvested during the first pass through the vines, fermented with native yeasts, and aged in old oak barriques ranging from 1-7 years old. With 8g RS, this doesn’t quite fall into demi-sec territory as much as it reminds us of the old-school, more supple style of Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley. With ample acidity and structure, this is some crazy good juice."
