As you open the bottle your nose is thrilled by the aromatic flavours of this delicious vintage. It is off-dry (just 5-6g/L.) so on the back of the tongue you have the subtle flavours of honey and a hint of minerality coming through, which gives it the Vouvray typicity. The soil is clay & limestone.
As the wine airs itself in the open bottle, it takes on a rounder flavour, still keeping its freshness as if just opened.
Swirling the wine around the glass, sniffing it, you have a slightly stronger honey-ness on the nose.
This wine will match up with so many foods, but especially crudities, delicately cooked fish dishes, butter chicken, light cheeses especially goats cheese, all white meat and most slightly spicey dishes.
It is an easy, affordable wine which is wonderful for dinner parties!It is also a treat for an easy, staying-at-home evening just chilling out!
Serve at 10-11°c.The wine is lovely now and as it ages it will take on flavours of acacia honey and quince.
It will age easily up to 7 more years, depending on your cellar.All our wines are totally unoaked.Suitable for Vegans and vegetarians.
Domaine de la Racauderie Vouvray Dry 2017
“A masterclass in balance and the possibilities of texture. Soft round honeyed apricot fruits on a rich palate.
The super concentrated fruit is kept lively by the fine lemon-citrus acid line. Lovely, joyful dry white.”
