Domaine de la Poultiere ‘Les Pierres Blanches’ Brut NV Vouvray

100% chenin blanc, as are all wines from Domaine de la Poultiere.  This is a beautiful wine, and certainly one of the few alternatives to Champagne that I would seriously consider for my ‘time off’ drinking. 

The nose is delicate, with aromas of cheesecloth, beeswax, apricot florals, hints of custard powder, lemon curd and salted stone fruit. Mouth-watering.  The palate shows a fine mousse, and overall plump mouthfeel. It is delicate and creamy and wonderful. This maintains a waxy texture and true chenin blanc fruit characters yet manages to insert them into a classic sparkling wine continent of flavour.  Seamless. Lovely. Yes.
