Tasting Note                         

92   2014  Francois Chidaine  Les Argiles (Vouvray)   3/25/16  ($25)

100% Chenin Blanc   12.5% alc
Color: Medium golden. (3.0) Bouquet: Lively waxed pear with intense minerality. (3.0) Body: Outstanding minerality, acidity and fruit. Tangy/buttery mouthfeel that coats. Light Heavyweight. (3.5) Flavor: Parallels, but more intense. (3.0) Finish: Most intense of all. It's richness and minerality linger for a very long time. (3.5)
Overall: Wonderfully lively minerality with rich waxed pear fruit. Beautifully balanced with intensity to its acidity-propelled structure. Drink now and in the next five years. Could certainly go longer as long as you don't mind losing some of the rich fruit. (16)
