Francois Chidaine Vouvray Les Argiles Sec 2020
The vineyard is run biodynamically. No chemical phytosanitary product is used. The soils are ploughed. Melliferous and nematicidal plants are sown in the rows. The preparations used come only from the processed plant, animal and mineral materials. The soil is composed of deep clays and white chalk, only clay-limestone in nature. The subsoil is made up of Tuffeau, a soft, white limestone rock through which the roots create a passage.
Winemaking and Maturation
After pressing, the alcoholic fermentation is carried out by indigenous yeasts in demi-muids, pieces of wood with a capacity of 600 liters. It can last up to six months. “Malolactic fermentation” is not sought. Ageing is carried out on fine lees, always in demi-muids.
Bright yellow colour with a nose of white flowers and some notes of citrus. Excellent minerality and length with nice richness.
100% Chenin Blanc
