Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Vouvray Cuvée Silex 2018
|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.
Very charming, with a racy profile, showing yellow plum, roasted pineapple and lime notes that are underscored by savory mineral elements. Grapefruit peel hints emerge on the slightly bitter finish. Best from 2021 through 2026.
