Really compelling, off-dry, aged Chenin Blanc showing remarkable balance and acidity now. If you are seeking to try something totally new and different, or are simply a fan of good, old Vouvray, this wine is the one to pick up. It offers a complex bouquet of (okay, here's where I get geeky): tire, white mushroom, orange marmalade, cinnamon and honey. The palate is rich and full, with more minerality, but echoing the nose with citrus marmalade flavors and mushroomy notes. The acidity is key here: still vibrant and fresh, supporting the residual sugar, making the finish peceptibly less sweet than you expect. Classic.
Drink from 2009 to 2014
