A beautifully composed Vouvray; the nose displays crystalline purity with hintsof honey and stone-fruit, while the palate is similarly elegant, off-dry (23grams residual sugar), delicate, gentle, dreamy even...perfectly placed to agetill 2015 but sensational now, especially with rich creamy fish dishes orcooked cheese. (David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
Tasted at Wine club. Bought subsequently. Pale Yellow with a higher viscosity. Apple, pineapple with some mock orange on the nose. A fair amount of sugar but with good acidity. Apple and pear fruit with a depth of mouthfeel that is quite lovely. Would love to try the sec.
Wine Spectator(2016 Vintage) This tilts toward the flattering side of off-dry, showing a plump feel to the core of creamed pear, white peach and yellow apple fruit. Lovely verbena, honeysuckle and mineral accents keep this balanced and driven, with a long finish that lets the fruit echo. Drink now through 2032. 2,000 cases made.–JM
