Loire, France

Bernard Fouquet Vouvray Cuvée de Silex is a white wine gem from the Loire Valley of France made of 100% Chenin Blanc. Bernard Fouquet, a quiet-spoken man, is making some of the most serious Vouvray you'll find these days. As the owner of Domaine des Aubuisieres, he is regarded in France and the international press as one of the top Vouvray producers. No one succeeds better than Bernard in capturing the mineral tones unique to Vouvray's soil, with the marvelous balance of explosive fruit and titillating sensation of the Chenin Blanc grape. Organic.

Bernard Fouquet Vouvray Cuvée de Silex is an off-dry Vouvray from low yields of about 45 hL/ha. Entirely hand-harvested and only indigenous yeasts used. Fermented and matured in stainless steel thermo-regulated vats. The wine is soft yellow-green in color with bright acidity. It is medium in body with an aromatic nose of peach, melon, almond and mineral notes. The wine offers a rich texture with bold flavors of peaches, green apples, pears, ginger and almond. It is clean and refreshing with good length on the finish.

Enjoy Bernard Fouquet Vouvray Cuvée de Silex over the next 7-8 years with roast chicken, grilled sole with a creamy morel sauce, crab salad and goat cheese.
