J. C. Pichot Vouvray Domaine le Peu de la Moriette 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Golden raisins on the nose and on the palate. Grape juicy, like table grapes concentrate. Easy to drink, already well-balanced with some elements of cloves, butter tarte tatin and a touch of maple sugar. Good fruit extension with some grapefruit and apple skin on the finish.

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. This 2010 scored 90 points from the Wine Spectator who said "Juicy and nicely wound, with a core of pear and quince fruit in reserve, held in check for now by a snappy green apple note that cuts through on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2015."

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.

Off-dry and flattering, with tasty quince, fig and pear flavors backed by a lilting floral note on the lively finish. Drink now through 2012.

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.

More golden in color than the sec. A Mirabelle plum nose. Lovely flavors of apple pie with cream, too, plus pineapple, cloves and ripe pear. Super round with acids that cling to the roof of your mouth. A silky, elegant finish.

As a student of wine, it is fascinating to see how different regions, terroirs, varietals, and producers coped with the scalding temperatures and drought that characterized 2003. Cotton candy and white flowers make up the aromatic profile of Jean-Claude Pichot's Vouvray. Initially, it comes across as pasty sweet on the palate, displaying over-ripe white fruit as well as herbal tea flavors amidst notes of candied almonds, yet with air its underlying minerality comes to the fore. Medium-bodied and silky-textured, it has a somewhat short finish. Readers willing to wait a year or two will enjoy this fine value more than those who open it now. Drink it between 2006 and 2009.

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.
