Domaine de Vaufuget Vouvray 2017

Member Review by JenniferT:

Slightly off dry (it reminded me of riesling), this is a well balanced chenin blanc with lots of acid and notes of green apple and honey with a touch of lime and some slightly salty minerality. Good length with a dry finish. (Proved to be a versatile cheese wine - the sweetness bounced well off both blue cheese and parmesan)

A Chenin Blanc with some body and citrusy sweetness with hints of honey.

The merchant was out of 2009, so I agreed to a 2010. It was waay too young and sweet ("Okay" for what it is, I suppose, but not the Domaine de Vaufuget Vouvray I remember). Compared to my past experiences (this is the only Vouvray that I have found to be exquisite, hence I am sad that it is so difficult to find) I give it a "1", but for what it is--a somewhat sweet white wine--I'll give it a "4+"; averaging the scores, I'll be generous and give it a "3". That said, it was most definitely NOT worth a postage fee that cost more than the wine!

My review is for the 2010 vintage. Hey Snooth, have you considered displaying the vintage in the search results? That would save a lot of clicking thru wrong vintages. Anyway, this was a light, sweet white. It has a bit of pineapple and grass, and reminded me of riesling. There is a touch of cheesy bitterness in the background. Nice.

Expressive aromas of smoke, candied lemon peel, apple and honey in this light-weight, vibrant Vouvray. It's fruity, with a softness that makes it appealing on its own. Drink now.

Clean with flavours of lime and green apples a light sweetness on the finish.

This delicious, ever-so-slightly off-dry Chenin Blanc hails from the Vouvray appellation in the Loire Valley’s Touraine district. Don’t worry about pronouncing the producer’s name; just focus on the unhindered fruit flavors and fresh floral aromas inside the bottle. It marries perfectly with salty charcuterie and white fish dishes.

For fans of a leaner style; this expresses some pear fruit, but more so pippin apple, lime and mineral, with a crisp finish. Drink now.

It is in Vouvray that Chenin Blanc achieves its greatest success, producing vividly fruity and zesty wines balanced with delicate sweetness. Vaufuget has been a reliable and affordable producer of tasty Vouvray for enjoying with or without the company of food (or relatives).
