The nose is discreet with quiet perfumes of honey and pollen.
In the mouth this just explodes! It is really lovely... For those of you who just love Vouvray and a little bit fruitier than most of my other wines, this will be just what you are looking for.
For those of you in the know the residual sugar is 28g/1L. So it is really medium, very little of the dry left...
2016 was in fact a superbe vintage. Most of us thought it wouldn't give too much given the coolish spring and summer.
But everything was forgiven by the gorgeous Indian Summer we all had! Pair this wine with lightly spiced dishes. Pork, chicken, and of course fish. Also desserts... Trifle, strawberries and cream, Eton mess... you know what I mean
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
Domaine de la Racauderie Vouvray Medium/Dry 2016 Waxy, honeyed and intense supported by acidity and showing notes of apple and tangerine. Beautifully balanced.
