Vouvray…So Elegant.

Posted on: May 29th, 2004 by

Although the namesake of my blog, I actually have not had a Vouvray for a while. Well, I just tried one that was enchanting:

2002 Abbeye de Marmoutier Vouvray Close de Rougemont

It has everything I love about a dry Chenin Blanc…so elegant, dry, crisp, and with wonderful mineral flavor. The soil of the Loire and incredible acidity…wow!

If you get a chance to drink a Vouvray that is 15+ years old, jump on it. Because of their acidity they can be long-lived, honey-rich, and golden.
