Natalie's Score: 89/100

Absolutely delightful! And although the sugar code is medium sweet, it comes off as medium-dry due to the vibrant, balancing acidity. Lovely, light and delicate French white wine yet not wimpy on flavour. Subtle white floral notes. This isn't as pungent as Viognier can be. Terrific aperitif or companion to light seafood. This off-dry French white wine from the Loire Valley, though this tastes very dry and has a lot more body and character than would belie the moderate 11% alcohol. Serve with fresh cuts of cold ham, cheeses and pate. Finishes with white floral notes and green citrus highlights.

Chenin Blanc food pairings: green salad, fresh seafood, any shellfish.

Aromatic quince and bright fruity(apricot) palate, silky with great acidity. Enjoy with pate or shellfish.

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is what Vouvray should taste like!

Yummy with typical characteristics of rusty apple, white and yellow flowers, white peach, and an attractive wet stone note.

Tasted Jan 2017
Produced by Noël Bougrier, this dazzling golden hue in the glass is the first to attract you. The Bougrier family have been making wine in the Loire since 1885. This wine is fresh with good acidity with honey, tropical and ripe red apple flavours. - Community Wine Reviews
