Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Vouvray Cuvée Silex 2018
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Vouvray|
A brilliant value Chenin that delivers the moreish combination of steely acidity with sweet peaches and pear creaminess. There is a touch of residual sugar in this - no more than 9g/l - but it is only discernible through the weight of fruit, never through sweetness. The vines are all aged between 30 and 40 years old, from a certified organic vineyard (farmed biodynamically). Drunk over a family lunch with heaped plates of langoustines and prawns, topped of with baguette and salty butter. Heaven, from an estate that I don't know well but was made hugely happy by. Drinking Window 2019 - 2023."- Jane Anson, Decanter
Very charming, with a racy profile, showing yellow plum, roasted pineapple and lime notes that are underscored by savory mineral elements. Grapefruit peel hints emerge on the slightly bitter finish. Best from 2021 through 2026.
