RATINGS

96Vinous / IWC

...pear, pineapple, nectarine and violet flavors. There's a sense of seduction and succulence through the middle of this wine... Delightful fragrance and a mouthwatering, racy finish.

95The Wine Advocate

...elegant and fascinating, unique nose that is crystal clear, precise, fresh, intense and aromatic... Crystalline, refined and elegant on the palate...finish is pure, citrusy and very mineral, most of all salty and lemon fresh, with fine tannins and a firm, sustainable structure.

95James Suckling

Stunning nose of spring blossom, Yamanashi white peach and honeycomb. Super-focused and racy with excellent concentration, everything gelling beautifully at the precise and intensely mineral finish.

94Wine Spectator

A concentrated, multilayered wine that is richly styled yet bristling with racy energy, featuring juicy apple and creamed pear flavors marked by ginger, cinnamon and allspice accents, with a firming core of salty mineral.

17Jancis Robinson

Minerally and restrained but with a big structure behind. Loads of oomph and drive. Very persistent and long.

REGION

France, Loire Valley, Touraine, 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.

TYPE

White Wine, Chenin Blanc

This light-bodied white wine grape has zest and versatility depending on its style. It is grown extensively in South Africa, where wineries produce dry wines. Traditional French Chenin Blancs are sweet. It is closest to Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc.
