About as pure and classic as can be for a bone dry Vouvray. Herbal, pithy, concentrated, savory, slightly exotic. Lemon zest, quince, bruised apple, wet wool, ginger, chamomile and bitter stone fruit pit flavors. Floral character emerges at the right temperature and with some decanting this will uncoil a bit and offer more flesh, weight and texture. Patience recommended, but this will nevertheless offer a lot of gratification and pleasure at this young stage as well.

Muted aromatics of orange. Palate of apple and pear with a herbal overtone. Taught minerals and bright acid support it’s medium weight. Very dry, almost austere. Nevertheless a very distinctive wine just chocked full of style. Excellent with roasted chicken breast with truffle and confit chicken leg from Covid-19 take out from @Copine.
