Vouvray sec Vincent
A father/son vineyard in the Loire Valley, Vincent Raimbault and his son produce wonderful wines from 25 to 60 year old vines. 3 Generations have been working this 14 ha site that is on a slight elevation with a definite Atlantic influence. Clay with outcrops of sand and silex on limestone bedrock.
There is a lovely maturity to this white. It’s fresh and fruity. We were immediately impressed with the flavours. Definitely a 00 in sweetness.
It worked wonderfully with a roasted organic chicken and a sheet of roasted veggies (parsnips, small BC potatoes, red pepper slabs, red onion quarters and a leek.) Homemade pickled beets rounded out the plate.
