From several small pickings of botrytized fruit that filled five demi-muids Chidaine will assemble (as he infrequently does) a 2009 Montlouis Les Lys that is a distilled essence of billowing and liquefied floral perfume - prominently lily and linden (tilleul) - along with candied grapefruit rind glazed pineapple and quince preserves. Silken in texture and seamlessly long this is ethereal rather than (as is more typical for moelleux Chenin of the vintage) confectionary and preserves a marvelous - given its ripeness and vintage almost miraculous - sense of refreshment. This extraordinary elixir promises to be one of the high points of its vintage and to merit following for at least a quarter century. 95-96+ -DS
