Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Vouvray Cuvée Silex 2019
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Vouvray|
The soil of this wine sometimes gives hints of "flint", emphasizing its mineral character, along with a fruity undertone from the ripeness of the grapes. Brilliant yellow gold, aromas of apple, pear and citrus fruit; ample and round on the palate, refreshing acidity in the finish. Slightly off-dry, sweetness balanced by the natural acidity. Outstanding with seafood such as scallops, langoustines and white fish in a delicate sauce.
A taut, focused dry style that's organically grown and hand-harvested. Hailing from silex soil, as the cuvée name makes clear, the 2019 Cuvée Silex is a compact and precise oering with laser-like, citrus-driven acidity. There's crisp apple fruit and white flowers on the nose, but this wine is all about the terroir-driven structure. It is uncompromising and sure of itself
