Les Coteaux Tufiers, Vouvray Demi Sec

The grapes for Vouvray Les Coteaux Tufiers are sourced directly from growers in the heart of the Vouvray region and have been for over 20 years. The old vine Chenin Blanc plots lie on chalky, tufa-laden plateaux (‘Les Coteaux Tufiers’) above the Premieres Côtes de Vouvray. Grapes are hand harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure a good sugar level which is necessary for the Demi-Sec style. Cool vinification is followed by élevage on fine lees to ensure maximum concentration.

The Les Coteaux Tufiers a delicious off-dry style of Chenin Blanc with stony minerality, cheese rind tones with a hint of lime zest. The palate is honeyed with baked apple, lemon curd and a touch of spicy ginger with a clean mineral finish. The light sweetness is perfectly balanced creating a lovely rich mouthfeel with refreshing acidity and a good length. This wine will cellar brilliantly becoming even more concentrated and fine.
