France — Loire • $17.95 • WD Score 89/100

This is a fine introduction to traditional method sparkling Vouvray, with the firm structure of just-ripe Chenin Blanc. The nose is dominated by notes of toast and roasted walnuts that give an almost resinous tone, with hints of lemon and red apple. The wine is dryish, with vivid acidity that defines the palate and masks the residual sugar. The fruit edges forward, over a subtle savoury, nutty and waxy depth, while the finish lingers with stony acidity. A fantastic value at this price. • Tasted 2018-01-06 • LCBO id#207936 • Find it at your nearest LCBOS. SCHIRALLI AGENCIES LTD., (Agent)
