"Unearthed from a cellar in Vernou, this fully mature Vouvray is chenin blanc in the old-fashioned style, with earthy, mushroomy quince and crab-apple flavour, and a certain soft-pillow charm. It may go on for years yet but our recommendation is to drink it now."
What we say:
I bought this for Elena and I as it was the oldest bottle I could find and thought it'd be fun to try something a little older than we are. We had a lovely evening in London and gently made our way through the bottle with some home made curry.
The wine itself is golden in colour and is much sweeter than I was expecting. However, this made it thoroughly drinkable. It was a great evening and would buy this again for something a bit funky.
