Perennial favorite

Domaine Le Peu de la Moriette (Domaine Pichot), Vouvray 2007 This wine embodies the sweet and tart character that Chenin can show so well when there’s a bit of residual sugar. Unfortunately our latest bottle in May of ’09 is a bit corked. The grapes are hand harvested from calcerous clay slopes with yields around 25 hectolitres/hectare. The wine is fermented and aged in large old wood of 450 litres. Mis par Jean-Claude Pichot, proprietaires-recoltants in Vouvray 12% $11.99 at Bottle Barn
