Tasting- Les Clos Francs Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2013


Name: Les Clos Francs Vouvray Chenin Blanc

Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc

Region: Loire Valley

Country: France

Year: 2013

Price: $21

Shop’s Notes: The cool climate in the Vouvray appellation area insures good acidity, which is balanced by the distinctly fruity character of the Chenin Blanc and the mineral qualities imparted by the soil. Thanks to these natural elements, this Vouvray combines elegance and vigor with honey dipped pears and an inherent freshness. -The Vintage Cellar

My Notes: I thought the nose of this wine was earthy with maybe a spice kind of smell but it was gentle. The taste itself I found to be a little too strong and acidic.

I did not have this with food.
