Tasting Notes

The 2016 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleaux is tropical and slightly oaky on the complex, spicy-mineral nose. Rich, super lush and nicely piquant toward the finish, this is an excellent, complex, well-structured and mineral though young baby Chenin Blanc that doesn't make much sense to be drunk young. The finish is pure, piquant and salty but also very aromatic and complex, with lingering tannin grip and intense fruit. Bottled with 57 grams of residual sugar and just 4.3 grams of acidity, which gives this a charming and mouth-filling character. Fine tannin structure here. Tasted February 2018.

Score: 93

A stunner, with beautiful pear, green fig, yellow apple and quince notes that are creamy and flirtatiously sweet, yet seamless and refined in feel. The extremely long finish lets honeysuckle and verbena notes dance throughout, with a light echo of white ginger at the very end. Best from 2020 through 2040.
