Les Lys Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2014 (6x 750mL), Loire Valley. Cork

Les Lys Vouvray 2015 AOC Chenin Blanc

Vouvray is the most famous and most respected appellation of the Loire Valley's Touraine growing region. The title covers white wines of various styles (sweet wine, dry, still and sparkling), from eight villages around the medieval town of Vouvray, on the northern banks of the Loire river.

Vouvray is the flagship wine of the Chenin Blanc grape (or Pineau de la Loire as it is known there), followed ever-closer by Savennieres and the sweet whites of Anjou. Few wine regions in the world use Chenin to the same extent. None showcase the variety's aromas and flavours with such focus and diversity.

The Vouvray appellation, located to the east of Tours, covers 5,000 acres of vineyard 150 miles west of Paris. The Chenin Blanc variety thrives on the sunny plateau overlooking the Loire River. The grapes are picked when very ripe to retain some residual sugar after fermentation. A straight forward refreshing version of Vouvray Chenin Blanc.

•This is above average in popularity for wines from Vouvray. This wine has been becoming increasingly popular over the past year.

•A diverse array of wines are made by this producer including those from grapes Cabernet Franc, Gamay, and Rare Rose Blend.

•A small number of outlets in Oceania and America have this wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Pale lemon colour, youthful nose of stone fruit, lemon, a hint of honey and minerality. On the palate, it has intense flavours that are much more citrus-based than the nose, plus a little pear, with a steely minerality.
