Montlouis-sur-Loire: Domaine des Liards Sec 2018
A dry Montlouis wine from Domaine des Liards - clean, green apple and grapefruit aromas precede a zesty, citric palate. This excellent example of Chenin Blanc has a bright, refreshing acidity and crisp, dry finish.
The Berger family's still Montlouis Sec is equally as meritorious as their sparkling Mousseaux Brut, with subtle spring blossom and citrus scents, lots of ripe orchard fruit flavours and a fresh, zesty finish - a wine that is taut and tangy and unfailingly reliable!
