VERY  SWEET  VOUVRAY  

Typof vinification :

 

         This LIQUEUR-LIKE VOUVRAY comes from hand-picked grapes attacked by noble rot.  After gentle pressing for 6 to 7 hours, the must with a high sugar concentration is drawn off and then transferred to oak barrels for long fermentation.  The fermentation is entirely spontaneous, without the addition of selected yeast.  Racked two or three times and finely filtered, the wine is bottled in the spring.

 

Ageing potential : 50 years or more in cellar.

 

Description :

 

          This light golden yellow wine with golden reflections has thick and close “legs”. A powerful bouquet reveals a subtle and harmonious mixture of crystallised figs, roasted almonds or even honey.  In the mouth, it begins with a fleshy and fruity sweetness and ends with a touch of acidity and a long note of quince.  This wine is structured with a remarkable elegance.
