Vouvray sec Dilettante, Pierre Breton, Loire Valley, France 2014
This dry wine is from Catherine Breton, who knows a thing or two about Chenin Blanc. She makes a wonderful all-purpose sparkler: crisp, dry, delicate, invigorating and affordable.
It has wonderful, rich, luscious pineapple and peaches, seemingly low acidity, yet retains its life. High toned white fruit notes merge with honeycomb and goats milk wrapped in a loving shroud of sweet blossom. A very tender style of Vouvray. Try it with scallops or prawns.’
