"This modern Vouvray eschews the traditional demi-sec style in favour of something drier – there’s around 8g-10g/L residual sugar here, giving it a softly rounded, slightly honeyed edge. Good acidity keeps it fresh, and there’s a mineral edge too, balancing out the ripe and juicy notes of yellow apple and quince fruit. Very moreish."
90 Points | Amy Wislocki, Decanter, Feb 2023

An absolute steal at this price point! White wine. Vouvray, Loire, France. Organic. 100% Chenin Blanc. Bouquet of pear, green apple, quince, and melon that develops notes of mineral and honey. Expressive and exceptionally well balanced on the palate with lots of lemon and a trace of anise.

Winemaker Notes: Bernard Fouquet, a quiet-spoken man, is making some of the most serious Vouvray of the last few vintages. He is now regarded in France and the international press as one of the top three Vouvray producers. No one succeeds better than Bernard in capturing the mineral tones unique to Vouvray’s soil, with the marvelous balance of explosive fruit and titillating sensation of the Chenin Blanc grape. Sensational value.

Domaine des Aubuisires is composed of 28ha of Chenin Blanc planted on the best terroir of Vouvray. Light yellow woth a hint of green. Green melon, ripe lemon and mineral notes on the nose. Delicate acidity carrying the floral-tinged finish.
