Painstaking Precision:
2017 Chidaine Vouvray Argiles Sec

Posted by Joe Salamone

Over the years, we've penned plenty of emails on Chidaine. Every vintage, there's a bottle or two from the vast range that really impresses us.

In 2017, Les Argiles is the stand out.

One of the things that make Chidaine's wines special is their clarity. They are crystal clear, sleek and just gorgeously composed. They are Chenin Blancs for the Riesling lover.

The 2017 vintage provided the perfect showcase for Chidaine's style.

In the Loire, 2017 produced pristine wines with gorgeous refinement and detail. It's really easy to imagine Chidaine thriving under these conditions and Les Argiles really dramatizes just how successful the wines are.

Chidaine's 2017 Les Argiles is a blazingly articulate presentation of minerals, herbs, citrus and stone fruits. There's a really impressive combination of buoyancy and presence. The 2017 Argiles has a serene precision.

Along with Chardonnay and Riesling, Chenin forms the holy trinity of noble white grapes. In Chidaine's hands, this couldn't ring truer. We're really excited to watch this bottle evolve over the next 5-7 years and beyond. There are few better values for the cellar.
