2013 Vouvray ‘Les Pentes de la Folie, Brunet

The domaine of Sébastien Brunet cultivates 37 acres of entirely Chenin Blanc. In order to express the characteristics of Vouvray's distinct terroirs, Brunet vinifies his silex-rich parcels separately from those planted in the limestone and clay soils. Cuvée Les Pentes de la Folie is comprised of some of his oldest parcels of vines, as old as 80 years. It's just off-dry with spicy characteristics of apple and quince on a lively frame showcase the flinty mineral beautifully. This is Vouvray at its very best.
