K&L Notes

Vincent Carême, together with his wife Tania, founded Domaine Vincent Carême in 1999 in the Vouvray region of the Loire Valley. The 2016 Domaine Vincent Carême "Le Clos" Vouvray Sec is a dry style Vouvray, with crisp, focused acidity, excellent weight and texture on the palate, and lots of potential to age. The Le Clos cuvée is one of Vincent’s top wines and sees 12 months in third-fill barrels prior to bottling. This strengthens the wine’s textural richness on the palate and gives excellent structure. One of the great aspects of Chenin Blanc is its ability to age gracefully, thanks to its naturally high acidity. While the wine does drink beautifully now and displays plenty of fresh orchard fruit, it should evelop honeyed aromas and exotic spice notes with a few more years in bottle and would be a treat to pair with oasted game birds. 95 points from the Winedoctor.com: "This cuvée is sourced from Le Clos, which sits on the première côte, directly behind Vincent's domaine. It was bottled in September 2017, and in this vintage it is carrying a rather generous 12 g/l of residual sugar. The aromatic profile is all orange blossom and citrus freshness. This purity comes through on the palate which has a beautiful balance, with a powdered minerality, fresh and tense in style, helped by its vibrant acidity. It is very focused, and full of energy. This is a long and vigorous cuvée, despite that tender residual sugar. Superb." (CK)
