Catherine & Pierre Breton, La Dilettante Vouvray 2015, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A sec Loire chenin blanc that is vibrant without being ostentatious.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of golden apple, pear slice, bruised white nectarine, orange zest and blossom.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chenin blanc has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a medium-plus, citrus finish.
The wine is creamy in texture with a soft mouth feel.
