La Dilettante Vouvray Brut NV

Vouvray, Touraine, Loire, FranceCatherine and Pierre Breton champion biodynamic viticulture in the Loire, use native yeasts and eschew much sulfur. They have been farming organically since 1987 and biodynamically since 1999. This is a pretty, light, elderflower, and apple blossomed sparkling chenin blanc from Vouvray. Traditional method (from two vintages) with 24 months on the lees and a light touch, deftly merging autolysis with subtle white florals. Gentle white peach lingers on the tight, bright, dry finish, with a gingersnap scented on the finish. Effortless and easily drinkable, especially at breakfast / brunch.Tasted: 28 February 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 46.00 private wine shops Producer: Catherine et Pierre Breton SarlDistributors: Racine Wine Imports
