Nice mineral and honey notes on nose. A touch sweet which works well for Chenin. Did not go well with some salumi, but was good with cheese. Read more

Great wine from Astor, imported by Louis/Dressner. Quite sweet to start, but sweetness abates fast and a complex/interesting flavor follows. Herbal and mineral.

Francois Pinon took over the estate from his father in 1987 and since then has been considered one of the finest estates of Vouvray. The vineyards located in the corniche of the Vallee de Cousse in Vernou is one of the premiers cotes of Vouvray. Francois emphasizes ecologically friendly practices making him a certified organic vineyard and winery. He follows the discipline of plowing the vineyards rather than using chemical fertilizers and he also harvests by hand. The alcoholic fermentation occurs in wood barrels then aged in stainless steel vats. The chenin blanc found in this traditional wine contains a bit of apple sweetness that ends with a resounding taste of delicate citrus.

A gentle sweetness in the attack brings on flavors of apple and quince, accented with spice, leading to a pleasant citrus finish with resonance and length.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cuvée Tradition is what is termed a vin tendre; the sweetness is between a sec and demi-sec. It has a delicate sweetness in the attack that gives over to a pleasant citrus finish with resonance and length. It has flavors reminiscent of apples and quince with a slightly spicy accent. This wine will continue to develop with age, but is affable and charming when drunk young.
