Implicite - 2019 - Ludovic Chanson
Domaine Ludovic Chanson
Fine and powerful, with notes of quince, white flowers, citrus fruit, yellow apple, and almonds in the shell... No residual sugar in this vintage, but still that beautiful acidity, plus lovely bitter notes, and monumental length. A Chenin for gastronomy, crafted for food pairings.

100% Chenin from organically grown vines, certified by Ecocert, and planted on the localities of Les Bâtisses and Les Pions in Montlouis-sur-Loire, on plots showing soils made up of flint and clay, typical of the area. Manual harvest. Vinification: direct pressing, entonnage therefore fermentation and aging in barrels (with one third of new oak), for 24 months. A pinch of sulfur in order to control the volatil acidity. Bottled right from the barrel, without filtration nor fining, no added sulfites at bottling.
