Assembled from diverse parcels with vines averaging 40 years, the bright, lemon yellow 2012 Vouvray Sec from Philippe Foreau starts somewhat versatile on the nose where refreshing citrus and white pip fruit aromas are intermixed with nutty and mineral flavors in a rather discreet way. The subtle aroma leads to a very elegant, pure, really dry, fresh, medium to full-bodied Chenin with a stunningly salty and long, tension-full finish. The meager purity, freshness and salinity reminds me of Manzanilla and works extremely well as an aperitif or with fish as well as with many spices of the Asian cuisine. (SR)
Bright yellow. Salty aromas of yellow apple, pear skin, citrus zest and pistachio. Juicy on the palate, with herbal flavors of apricot, melon and chalky minerals exhibiting good intensity through the finish. Crisp and balanced, this would be lovely with snails. (JBP)
