"A very pretty, high-toned style, with powdered ginger, talc and quince notes leading the way, followed by jasmine, pear and green almond accents on the back end. A racy, minerally spine runs throughout. Chenin Blanc. Drink now through 2018. 100 cases imported." May 2016

Product Description:

"Vouvray Les Caburoches used to be called Champs Rougets. Analogous to the Dix Arpents, this accessible Vouvray is from the first passage (tri) through the vineyards. Blot’s Vouvray Les Caburoches originates in a 30-year-old, south facing vineyard with limestone-clay soil on a pure limestone subsoil. Blots prunes severely with the goal of attaining a yield of about 30 hectolitres per hectare, which is tiny for a Vouvray. The grapes are all harvested by hand and then hand selected on a sorting table. After a gentle pneumatic pressing, fermentation begins with the native yeasts and no chaptalization. The wine develops on its lees in neutral, 4-6 year old barrels until the Spring, when it is bottled. Blot’s Vouvray is a deeply textured, concentrated yet fresh and vivid Chenin Blanc." -Importer
