The 2008 Montlouis Les Bournais is another Chidaine of its vintage with sharp edges bright penetration and tinges of bitterness here of lime and grapefruit with their pits and rinds. Strongly saline and chalky mineral notes saturate but there are admittedly fewer fine points accessible here at this early stage. Positively sizzling as well as exhilaratingly refreshing in finish this wine doesn't just draw your saliva; it practically picks you up off of your feet! I would give it at least two years bottle age and expect it to perform electrically for ten or more. There is a rare Franc de Pied bottling of Les Bournais from 2008 but sadly I have not had opportunity to taste it. -DS
