Indulge yourself

Francois Chidaine Vouvray Clos Baudoin, Loire Valley 2010 $55

This is off-dry chenin blanc has mineral, earthy, chalky aromas, a touch of spice and stone-fruits. The palate tracks the nose, being savoury, complex yet reserved. There’s richness and alcohol warmth, smooth texture and sweetness which is balanced and clean to finish. Very long. Now to 2035. 14 per cent alcohol. 96/100

Food: charcuterie with cornichons
