SWEET  VOUVRAY  

Typof vinification :

 

            SWEET VOUVRAY comes from hand-picked grapes attacked by noble rot.  After gentle pressing for 7 to 8 hours, the must with a high sugar concentration is drawn off and then transferred to oak barrels for long fermentation with temperature control.   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 :

 

A gold or bright straw colour, with slightly golden reflections, this wine has lovely “legs”.  The complex and very intense smell reveals an aroma of crystallised fruit, peach, tea and a slight note of quince.  This wine is powerful and voluminous, long on the palate, followed by a slight bitterness and a return to the quince aroma.

-         foie gras,
