This wine is the colour of yellow gold or straw-coloured with gently glowing silvery. To the nose, its aromas suggest broom, white roses, acacia, honeysuckle, fern, verbena, lemon-grass, and citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin oranges). In the mouth, the finish adds nuances of pine, quince and fennel. This wine is fresh and luscious as well as dry and well-fruited. It has good concentration backed by sufficient acidity to ensure its keeping quality. It is full and smooth in character.
The grapes come from the slopes of the Loire Valley known as "The Garden of France". Very aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. On the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity characteristic of grapes harvested at good maturity.
Oak-aged for 10 months, the wine has a clear, golden-yellow colour and a powerful, elegant bouquet of vanilla, exotic fruits, honey and subtle spices. Wonderfully rounded and fleshy on the palate, it displays honey and gingerbread flavours that persist in the mouth.
Bright white gold in colour with a pronounced, vibrant nose showing citrus and floral aromas with hints of brioche. The palate is full of mineral flavours alongside zippy citrus and green apple characteristics. The finish is elegant and very fine.
Bright lemon yellow in colour, with abundant aromas of citrus and stone fruit. The medium-bodied palate shows lovely purity of lemon and mineral flavours, balanced by riper peach and pear fruit, which last well on the elegant and refreshing finish.
One word, magnifique!
The nose carries tones of vanilla, apple, citrus, toasted almond, butterscotch and ripe, ripe fruit.
The palate is equally rich and rewarding with great structure and balance throughout. Lively acidity carries through to the end of the lip-smacking finish. Stunning wine!
Chenin Blanc is much the preserve of South African winemakers these days, but its origins lie in the Loire Valley. Savennières and Coteaux de Layon are perhaps the most famous Loire Chenins, but not always entirely ‘price accessible’. Vouvray provides an elegant and very affordable solution. The Vieux Vauvert is medium-dry (which is to say, there’s just a hint of sweetness) with a lively fresh finish. This wine has a plethora of flavours to share: among them, ripe apple, quince, lime and citrus blossom.
The Pinot Blanc Reserve is light gold-yellow in color, with an intense, fresh nose of citrus fruits, refined complexity. The expressive, charming and approachable aromas carry through to the palate, with a pure attack, nice balance, strong fruitiness and
