Domaine du Viking Vouvray Tendre 1990

Member Review by jaye:

Top of cork was covered in black mold which concerned me a bit initially, but after carefully washing and uncorking the wine, I was delighted to find that the mold had not penetrated down the cork. Color was dazzling - a beautiful crystal clear gold. After allowing for a good aeration, nose was candied lemon peel with maybe just a hint of orange peel too. This full-bodied, not quite viscous but absolutely luscious wine was lightly sweet, with flavors reminiscent of Peaches & Pears in Light Syrup, accompanied by lemony and floral undertones. The alcohol (12%) was fully integrated, and I detected a hint of chamomile flavor on the finish. This is really a lovely wine.
