Domaine du Viking Vouvray Brut (Previously $20)
A pure, stylish sparkler, showing alluring pear, ginger and quince notes that linger on the mineral-tinged finish. Nicely done. Drink now. 500 cases made.
All hand harvested, sorted, de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in a tiny cellar located in the northern end of Vouvray. From vineyards planted on chalk and silex and fermented in stainless steel tanks and released after two years of bottle age in the cellar. Lovely apple and citrus aromas with a dry yet rich finish.
