The Chenin grape is probably the most versatile in the world. It makes wonderfully light dry wines, astounding medium-dry wines, and the most sumptuous sweet pudding wines!
This Vouvray sweet is very sweet although not in the least "tacky". It leaves your mouth feeling like having just one more sip. Just to make sure...
Open this wine at least an hour in advance so that the wine can breathe well. Fill your mouth with the subtle flavours of honey, pollen, apricots & cream. Feel how the wine launches forth to match the desserts you have made for it. Marvellous with trifle. Wonderful with strawberry mousse and custard creams... and, of course, Christmas pudding!
You can also drink it as a cocktail as a change.
Half used bottles will keep well in the door of the fridge. Just put the stopper back in.
Domaine de la Racauderie Vouvray Sweet 2011 - As sweet as a festive honey bee with attitude.
