Vaufuget Vouvray 2011
Straw color with white fruit aromas enhanced by subtle notes of wildflowers. Luscious and full on the palate, forward mixed-fruit flavors of ripe peaches, green figs, even a hint of banana; there's a distinct impression of sweetness. There's some acidity behind it all, drying it out a bit as the wine crosses the palate.
Slightly off dry (it reminded me of riesling), this is a well balanced chenin blanc with lots of acid and notes of green apple and honey with a touch of lime and some slightly salty minerality. Good length with a dry finish. (Proved to be a versatile cheese wine - the sweetness bounced well off both blue cheese and parmesan)
A Chenin Blanc with some body and citrusy sweetness with hints of honey.
The merchant was out of 2009, so I agreed to a 2010. It was waay too young and sweet ("Okay" for what it is, I suppose, but not the Domaine de Vaufuget Vouvray I remember). Compared to my past experiences (this is the only Vouvray that I have found to be exquisite, hence I am sad that it is so difficult to find) I give it a "1", but for what it is--a somewhat sweet white wine--I'll give it a "4+"; averaging the scores, I'll be generous and give it a "3". That said, it was most definitely NOT worth a postage fee that cost more than the wine!
