Domaine de Vaufuget Vouvray 2009

I tasted this one a long while ago and bought it for a store I was the buyer for at the time. On a visit to Firefly Fine Wines and Ales in Maple Ridge, BC to say hello to some old colleagues (and check out how the selection was progressing!) I saw a few bottles on the shelf and knew I had to have one!

This Vouvray is a medium dry style (made from Chenin Blanc) and has a lovely aroma of acacia honey, honeysuckle flowers, ripe golden yellow apples, and juicy pears. The palate delivered a great balance of mouth-watering acidity, ripe cantaloupe, apples, pears and touch of minerality in the background. This is delicious and worked well with the chunk of Port Salut (washed rind) cheese I had with it. You could easily try this a Goan fish curry or some fruity, spicy Thai food.

If you don’t know Chenin or a scared of an unfamiliar French appellation then I assure you won’t be disappointed with this wine – so give it a go!
