Produced in Vouvray, this perfumed, lightly honeyed wine is creamy and soft to drink. There is some fine acidity to give a light touch to the ripe fruitiness. There is a nutty quality that's typical of the Chenin Blanc in the blend. The aftertaste suggests the wine could age a few months in bottle.
