Domaine des Aubusières Cuvée de Silex Vouvray 2011, AC Loire, France

Pale straw in color, this wine is made with 100% Chenin Blanc grapes, with fermentation and maturation in thermo-regulated vats and alcohol comes in at 13.5%.
This wine opened up with aromas of peaches, apple, citrus fruit, minerals and light floral notes. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, off-dry (with 12 g/L of residual sugar) with a mouth coating sweetness of ripe tree fruit and honey but well match by lively acidity. This Vouvray’s finish is long, with a beautiful rich honeyed texture and light mineral notes. This is the third time I have enjoyed this wine over the last month, twice before with friends and all of us were in agreement that this was well made, very enjoyable and a superb value. Strongly recommended, score 89 points.
Purchased May 25, 2013 LCBO Vintages New Release (057042) at $17.95
