Light, elegant soft fruit nose. Fine citrus and herbaceous notes. Pure acidity holds the wine together very well and the finish is precise and long. An incredible clean, fresh and impressively well balanced Pouilly Fume.
A subtle, delicate expression of Sauvignon, underlined on the palate with a silky mouthfeel. Lemon, gooseberry and blackcurrant bud are detected in this fruity, elegant and racy wine. A classic expression of Sauvignon de Touraine.
Pale yellow in colour with a touch of complexity on the nose brought about by ageing on the lees. The palate is well balanced with surprisingly good weight and concentration followed by a clean, crisp finish.
An acclaimed producer whose exhibit the complexity of the terroir of Chavignol, being chalky with a touch of gunflint then opening on the palate with a broad array of flavours and wonderful length. The grapes for this wine are harvested from the Monts Damnes, slopes so steep that they are called cursed. A graceful and flavourful wine that will age and age. It has classic Loire characteristics of blackcurrant leaf, yellow plum and lemon with mineral and floral notes on the palate.
Domaine Huet is a well-established name in Vouvray and they were early pioneers of biodynamics in the region. This wine has really delicious notes of apples, lemon curd and honey on the nose. The palate is quite full and rich with more of these ripe fruit and honey flavours and lovely mineral streak which combined with fresh acidity cuts through the sweetness.
An elegant, fully dry Loire Chenin from the Fiefs Vendéens appellation; whereas much of the Loire’s better-known Chenins originate from way upstream in the Touraine or Anjou-Saumur, this comes from just where the river spills into the Atlantic below Nantes.
Indeed, Domaine Saint-Nicolas is precisely why Fiefs Vendéen is known. Michon are biodymanic producers and the Hauts des Clous is the epitome of their art. It has a progressive intensity with great tension and freshness, apple and peach aromas, a very smooth texture and long finish. There are not many dry Chenins like this.
Aromas of honey and honeysuckle can be found on the nose, on the palate it is light, dry and crisp, with well balanced acidity and a long lingering finish of quince, melon and honeydew. Best drunk young.
