August Bonhomme La Forcine Vouvray 2013
With a bouquet of honeysuckle, quince, marzipan, ginger, and apricot, this proves amazingly dense and rich in the mouth, with deep, bitter-sweet walnut and fruit pit notes, yet elegance and a nearly perfect balance of fruit and acidity. An exchange of wood smoke, chalk and salt with quince, apple, marzipan, ginger, and sweet flowers marks its long, engaging, finish.
Welcoming light sweetness with lovely quince, pear, and green apple fruit, laced with lime zest and ginger hints. The long, mineral-filled finish is mouthwatering with nice round viscosity with underlying acidity. Chenin Blanc is a versatile white grape variety known for its high acidity and aging potential. Most commonly associated with the Loire Valley, Chenin Blanc has been cultivated in France for nearly 1300 years. Vouvray is the most famous and most respected appellation of the Loire Valley's Touraine district. The title covers white wines of various styles (sweet, dry, still and sparkling), from eight villages around the medieval town of Vouvray.
