François Chidaine, Vouvray Sec Les Argiles 2010

Kirkcrest Imports, Danville CA.

As the name ‘Argiles’ indicates, a blend of pickings and lots from five clay-rich lieux-dits in Vouvray.

Lemon yellow.  Ocean breezes blow over land where rain just fell.  Fruit is ripe-malic with an innate power to it, so buffered in dry extract it will not register as power at all.  The white iris of his youth is beginning to turn to truffle.  Long.  Now – 2020+.
