VOUVRAY, LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE
Domaine de Pouvray is a bit of a run-down estate in Vernou-sur-Brenne. With most of the current wines going through the local co-op, you won't see these wines that often. However, like a lot of producers in the Loire, they have a fantastic cellar of older vintages, which are the wines that are coming to the market.
Seriously good Vouvray will last a long time. This is developing really lovely rounded berry fruit, a lot of apricot jam, mango and papaya. Brilliant.
What a wine - truffles, honey, cooked peaches and a lovely long, semi sweet palate. A fabulous example of a sweeter Vouvray. Wine available Mid May 2018. Contains Sulphites
