Alain Robert & Fils Vouvray Sec 'Empreinte' (2018)

New

This mineral & citrusy dry wine is made from Chenin Blanc grapes grown on a clay & limestone soil. The weather of the year clearly impacts the taste of the final wine but the winemaker’s goal is to reveal the elegance of a dry Chenin Blanc wine from the terroir of Vouvray.

The winemaker’s suggestion: this dry Vouvray, vinified partially in casks, will pair well with beautiful but simply cooked products such as clams, a carpaccio of scallops & lime juice, prawns, langoustines or a grilled turbot
