Vouvray is a classic Loire white, made from the Chenin Blanc grape variety. There is plenty of rich ripe fruit, offering a little residual sugar, finishing fresh and dry.
Pierre-Jean Sauvion, Maison Sauvion’s current oenologist, carried out his first grape harvests in Cahors, Saint-Émilion and Château Haut-Sarpe. With his oenologist’s diploma in his pocket, he travelled abroad to widen his knowledge: the Chappelet vineyard in California and the Howard Park estate in Australia. With this double experience behind him, he now tends the Sauvion vines with loving care and attention! Pierre-Jean pays particular attention to supervising fermentation and maceration for the production of easy-drinking wines. He owes his wine-making secrets to his teachers, secrets handed down by his uncle and father.
On the nose it is clean with is a touch of honey, this is verging on tropical, there is an orangey sweetness. the palate is obviously off dry as expected. good complex flavours, there is plenty of grip and acidity to counter the richness of the fruit. Good with tangy finish.An interesting wine.
