Catherine & Pierre Breton Vouvray Sec La Dilettante 2019
REGION : Loire, France
GRAPE: 100% Chenin Blanc
Velvety - Stone Fruits - Floral
This Vouvray Sec is Velvety and soft, with notes of white flowers and lime which mingle with blossom, minerals and a touch of honey. It will reward with ageing, in its youth its crisp light and refreshing.
Catherine and Pierre Breton have been running their 15 hectare vineyard along organic lines since 1991; they’ve been biodynamic since 1997. Located between Tours and Samur in the Loire Valley, they specialise in red wines from the Chinon and Bourgueil appellations. They use indigenous yeasts for their fermentations, and only the minimum use of sulfur dioxide (typically 10 mg/litre of SO2 added at bottling). All wines are unfiltered, and the goal is to make wines that express their terroirs and vintage.
Try this with Black Mount - a mineraly, peppery goat's cheese.
