Classically styled Sauvignon Blanc from one of the most highly regarded growers in the central Loire Valley. In the village of Husseau, François Chidaine has worked alongside his father Yves for many years in their own vineyards. François has strong feelings about viticulture and works his vines the old-fashioned way, but does not want any mention of organic viticulture on his bottles although his wines are certified organic. He says, “Wine is born from the vine, not from artificial skills of re-creation in the winery. It is sufficient to start modestly by working the soil.” This crisp and clean Sauvignon Blanc, with mineral and citrus packed in, has surprising length and complexity for its simple appellation. It’s a great lower-priced alternative to the much higher-priced Sauvignons produced in the eastern Loire Valley, namely, Sancerre.
