This is what Vouvray is all about – a wine of contradictions it is fresh, dry and steely-mineral yet with a nice plump texture, rounded and nuanced. 100% Chenin Blanc, this is a classic European white and great match with fish, white meat and pork belly.
"Bernard Fouquet, a quiet-spoken man, is making some of the most serious Vouvray of the last few vintages. He is now regarded in France and the international press as one of the top three Vouvray producers. No one succeeds better than Bernard in capturing the mineral tones unique to Vouvray’s soil, with the marvellous balance of explosive fruit and titillating sensation of the Chenin Blanc grape. Sensational value."

93/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, October 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Green melon, honey, ripe lemon. Light and flinty, juicy fruit, tight acidity and a kiss of sweetness, melon and lemon tang on a nice long finish. Playful tussle between sweetness and acidity makes for happy, and easy drinking here."
5 Stars & 95/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review (2016 Vintage)
"This is attractively perfumed, floral, lightly honeyed, youthful and bright. It’s a nervy style with slaty mineral aromas combining with fresh appley fruit. The flavour is intense and lively, with refreshing acidity and a subtle touch of sweetness. The aftertaste is long and lip-smackingly delicious."
