(From 2013 Vintage) Expressive white peach, lemon and apple, gentle fennel and wet slate provide an enticing aroma of youthful energy. The palate is rich and concentrated but with that unmistakeable Huet acidity that creeps through and sits beautifully alongside the very clear, flinty quality on the mid-palate. There is excellent substance here, layers of citrus fruits and minerals vie for attention and lead to a long and intense finish.
(From 2000 Vintage) Not for the Loire neophyte, this Vouvray is bone dry, with great cut. Shows pure almond, honeycomb, clove, white peach, mineral and chamomile notes, all kept lively by riveting acidity.

Wine & SpiritsRating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. This is fuller bodied and darker in tone than the Haut-Lieu (recommended above), reflecting this site's deeper clay soils. It combines a richly fragrant depth of fruit with a tightly focused structure and grip, managing to feel both racy and broad at the same time.
