Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Assembled from diverse parcels with vines averaging 40 years, the bright, lemon yellow 2012 Vouvray Sec from Philippe Foreau starts somewhat versatile on the nose where refreshing citrus and white pip fruit aromas are intermixed with nutty and mineral flavors in a rather discreet way. The subtle aroma leads to a very elegant, pure, really dry, fresh, medium to full-bodied Chenin with a stunningly salty and long, tension-full finish. The meager purity, freshness and salinity reminds me of Manzanilla and works extremely well as an aperitif or with fish as well as with many spices of the Asian cuisine."
