Popped and poured. The 2017 Domaine du Clos Naudin, “Sec” pours a deep straw color, medium viscosity with no signs of sediment or gas. On the notes, the wine is developing with beautiful notes of stone fruits; peaches and apricots with melon and some associated fruit cup notes. There’s a honeysuckle floral component too. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+/high acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and there is some really attractive texture. Impeccable balance. I get the sense that this will age well. Drink now and through 2030.

Aromas of pear, fig, white flowers and something sweet, Wonderful aroma! Crisp and a nice smoothness on the bud. Great finish! Perfect with our lemon butter garlic scallops on vermicelli. — 25 days ago

It’s interesting to compare to Huet, though didn’t have them side by side. Chidaine kind of inhabits the mouth & palate, as if taking up residence: it’s so full & voluptuous.vibrating golden rod color, sunflowers. Waxy white & yellow stone fruits, with echoes of minerality. The fruit is dominant in its favor, I believe, but the half life could be so long can imagine a glorious tertiary & mineral future. I just can’t keep my paws off them long enough. — 2 months ago
