Wine Review: This pale white gold colored Chenin Blanc from Vouvray opens with a faint quince bouquet with hints of chamomile, dried orange peel, bee’s wax, and celery. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is well-balanced, silky, and supple. The flavor profile is very tasty mild quince and chamomile blend with hints of pineapple, baked pear, honey, and orange. The finish is off-dry and drifts away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chenin Blanc with baked bay scallops or with a tarte Tatin. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Revealing the soul of a unique grape variety that takes root right down to the tuffeau, the demi-sec vibrates and resonates in the mouth like a taste echo, the natural sugar and acidity of Chenin blending harmoniously. Aerial and complex, it is appreciated young on the fruit but also gradually reveals itself to those who know how to wait.
