2011 Francois Chidaine Vouvray Clos Baudoin
This classic chenin blanc is almost dry - and has a flowery, mineral aroma. The palate is intense and penetrating, with taut, linear structure and refinement, and terrific length. The finish is dry. A superb combination of power and finesse. Now to 2035. 14 per cent alcohol.
Food: Charcuterie with cornichons.
