Barton & Guestier Les Petites Parcelles Vouvray 2019

Vouvray, Touraine, Loire, FranceThis chenin comes from a few sites across Vouvray's sandy clay limestone soils. It was fermented and aged in stainless, on lees. This is an off-dry white, with honeysuckle, ripe pear, apricot blossoms, and a sprinkling of white pepper on the finish. The acidity is chenin high, but feels a bit adjusted to account for the 23 g/L RS. A simple, somewhat disjointed chenin that is best enjoyed with a chill.
