External Reviews for J. C. Pichot Vouvray
Reticent on the nose, but lush and bold on the palate, with pear, spice, melon and fig flavors. Juicy finish brings you back for more. Delicious. Drink now through 2005.
This vineyard, situated on the premiers coteaux of Vouvray, offers low yields in order to maintain its high intensity of flavor. This fresh, floral Chenin Blanc is rich, slightly dry, pure and concentrated. It has the perfect crispness to accent seafood dishes or to keep you quenched on a warm spring night.
Jean-Claude Pichot’s family is one of the oldest in Vouvray, with origins as viticulturists and restaurateurs dating back to 1739. Their estate vineyards, the Domaine le Peu de la Moriette has expanded over the years from thirty just over fifty acres of hillside vineyards. 2008 was a spectacular vintage for Vouray and this wine shows rich complex flavors. Off-dry with fig and pear flavors and a lively finish.
A lean, minerally style, with fig, green almond, orange blossom and mineral notes that stay nicely focused through the lithe finish. Drink now through 2009.
Shows all the complexity you expect from a sweet wine of this age, with burnished leather, lemon cream, orange peel, marzipan, green tea and almond flavors. Long and lush, with layers of papaya and mango emerging on the finish. Seamless. Gorgeous. A re-release for this wine, which was not rated previously. Drink now through 2005.
Clear, lively flavors of ripe apricot and honey show a buoyant and balanced sweetness and hints of lanolin and toast. Itrsquo;s fresh and well-poised a great value.
The 2002 Vouvray bursts from the glass with profound mineral, white flower, spice, and candied pear aromas. Light to medium-bodied, it is pure, juicy, tangy, and satin-textured. This off-dry wine (the sweetness is barely noticeable) offers flavors reminiscent of almond candy drenched in sweet lemon juice. In addition, its finish is long, supple, and flavorful. Projected maturity: nowndash;2010.
