2013 Domaine Foreau Vouvray Sec
The Foreau estate was founded in 1923 and is now operated by the third generation of the Foreau family. These richly textured but classically produced Chenin Blancs are farmed with organic practices to ensure the health of the soils and vines, thus making amazingly pure and layered wines. This Vouvray Sec is fairly dry but just dripping with apples, pears and honey aromas and flavors. There is a fine thread of citrus rind that runs along the sides of the palate, with some slight chalky notes. Nice weight in the mouth with tons of grippy acidity. I love this now but you can surely cellar if you wish.
