Château de Valmer, Vouvray 2014, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A Vouvray for those who enjoy a dry chenin blanc with a touch of sweetness on the attack.
Pale lemon in color with only the faintest hint of lemon color this wine has a nose of pear, green apple and apple blossom.
On the palate this dry, light-bodied Vouvray has a round character on the attack characterized by ripe, sweet, green fruit and medium-acidity.
There are some traces of mid-palate complexity, but the wine is mostly straightforward and enjoyable in its dimension.
