Damien Pinon Tuffo Vouvray Sec 2018

AT FIRST SIP-Unripe quince flesh, white pear and ripe grapefruit. A chalk dust note lingers over everything. The palate is a bit of a contrast to the alluring orchard fruit nose, the acid really drives through and lifts the palate. Squeaky texture seeps through the refreshing acid. Flavours on the palate are all honey tinged green apple. Dry (ish) and absolutely delicious. AFTER A FEW- Crunching over a white chalk driveway down to the pool.

Marc Bredif is a domaine synonymous with Chenin Blanc and longevity. As one of the famed, classic names of the Loire Valley they are behind some of the most long lived Chenin Blancs through their range of Vouvray Classic (off-dry) , Vouvray Grande Année (longest lived and range between 30-70g residual sugar) and The Vouvray Collection (noble rot wines often with over 60g residual sugar).

The Marc Bredif Domaine was established under the name Chateau les Roches in 1893 and became named as we know it today in 1919. often seen as a benchmark for classic, off dry styles of Chenin Blanc in Vouvray. Their Classic range is often delicious and nervy when young before unleashing complex tertiary characters that delight aged wine lovers.
