Pichot Vouvray 2008

Domaine Le Peu de la Moriette (Domaine Pichot), Vouvray 2008 In the nose there is a sense of herbaceousness, candied green fruit and floral notes. In the mouth there is that familiar balance of the sweet and the tart, as this wine has consistently shown. There’s plenty of concentration again making this wine a great value.

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% $11.49 at Bottle Barn
