Domaine du Viking Vouvray Tendre 2010

External Review:

Off-dry in feel, with juicy quince, pear and fig flavors that linger nicely on the finish. Drink now.

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.

Tendre means tender, as in tender sweet. There are 17% grams of residual sugar, but you would never know it there's so much acidity... lovely zing and an aromatic complexity reminiscent of candied pink grapefruit.

Off-dry at first impression, with green almond, fig and pear flavors, this gives way to a more cut on the back end, with floral and candied ginger notes. Long, minerally finish. An absolute steal at this price. Drink now through 2020.
