François Chidaine Vouvray Clos Baudoin 2007

Member Review by happyrobot:

Being somewhat young, the acidity is pretty high and the aromas and flavors are still a tad wound up. This is his value wine, but it is a great deal because there tends to be a lot happening in your glass... all sorts of things on the nose. Lemon. Tart apples. "cooking spices" as they say. On the palate, it has a nice mouth feel yet very crisp. The body is fairly full and this is where the traditional honey note comes out.

Still a touch tight, with a core of pure Bosc pear and Jonagold apple notes waiting in reserve. Hints of orange blossom, quince, cardamom and green almond chime in on the lengthy finish, which has latent depth. Should open nicely with brief cellaring... Wine Spectator. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2007 Chidaine, Domaine Montlouis Sec les Tuffeaux 750ml

An outstanding white from the Loire Valley. The Chenin Blanc grapes give extremely elegant and flavorful aromas of honey and flowers. A perfect complement to rich chicken or fish dishes.

Vivid yellow-gold. Ripe tangerine and poached pear on the nose, with notes of spicecake and candied ginger adding complexity. Fleshy orchard fruit and sweet citrus flavors are kept in check by dusty minerality and pick up a strong floral quality with... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2007 Chidaine, Domaine Montlouis Sec les Tuffeaux 750ml
