97-98The Wine Advocate

...highly concentrated and complex on the nose that exhibits candied lemon zest and chutney aromas along with calcareous and walnut notes. Sweet (really sweet!) yet refined and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, rich and generous yet piquant and firmly structured, greatly tensioned and salty 1ère Trie with pineapple flavors on the finely tannic and energetic, very sustainable finish.

97Wine Spectator

Showy but still elegant and refined, this beautiful wine binds together yellow fig compote, glazed white peach and crystalized ginger notes with details of green tea, blanched almond, verbena and honeysuckle. Harmonious, with tremendous length, kept lively by vivid acidity.

94Vinous / IWC

Offering orange peel, apricot jam, floral essences and apple sauce, it's satisfying and nourishing...

17+ Jancis Robinson

Smells like bay leaf in pineapple syrup. Spruce tips and pine cones dipped in icing sugar. Baked apples and lemon zest. Samphire salt and honey. Masses of complexity...exquisite detail of wild herbs, spices, fruits. Bitter herbs whorl into sweet spices, woodland into citrus, meadow into seashore.


France, Loire Valley, Vouvray

Vouvray is on the right bank of the Loire River, in one of the most picturesque and photographed regions of France. It is close to the city of Tours and the many famous châteaux of the Loire Valley. The appellation takes its name from the commune of Vouvray and it was awarded appellation d’origine contrôlée status in 1936. The 5,000 vineyard acres within the appellation are almost exclusively planted to Chenin Blanc, though the white grape Arbois is permitted. The Chenin Blanc wines of Vouvray are noted for their naturally high acidity, and the wines can be made in a variety of styles from dry to sweet, and sparkling wines are also allowed. The wines are also notable for their ability to age. Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley’s finest producers are highly prized by wine enthusiasts with a taste for distinctive whites.
