Chateau de Valmer, Loire Valley, France, 2014 (750ml)
The family winemaking traditions of Château de Valmer date back to the end of the 19th century, with today's fourth and fifth generation members working meticulously to keep the passion alive. Château de Valmer Vouvray is a pure expression of Chenin Blanc, sourced from deep rooted vineyards atop the stony slopes of the Loire Valley. Fermented in glass-lined tanks, this Vouvray is kept in cement vats prior to bottling to retain freshness.
This Vouvray is a light golden color in appearance, with bright, enticing aromas of crisp golden apple and Anjou pear. The palate has just a hint of sweetness, with subtle mineral nuances on the finish.
Château de Valmer Vouvray pairs wonderfully with fresh crab and lobster, spicy Indian curries and Tandoori as well as tangy goat cheese
