"This wine is rich with smooth ripe fruit that give the impression that it is off dry. In fact, it is the intensity of the fruit that is the driving force behind the wine. With acidity strongly in the background, there is a crisp element to this fine lemon and apricot-flavored wine." Editors Choice
Clos Le Vigneau is a single 6 hectare vineyard from an area known as "les Gués d'Amant" or "Lover's Gap". Most of the vines were planted in 1929. The soil is a mixture of argilo-calcaire, silex and gravel. Alexandre Monmousseau believes in low yields for concentration and flavor. The grapes are hand harvested. Pressing is long and slow, fermentation is in stainless steel with two rackings and a light filtration before bottling.
The wine is off dry in style with honey, earth and apricot notes. Wines from the town of Vouvray have been known to age well for 40 years. This particular bottling should hold for at least 5-7 years. This Loire Valley white wine from France is perfect on a warm spring day. ~ Winery Notes
