NV Vouvray

NV Domaine de Vaugondy

NV Domaine de Vaugondy Brut, AC Vouvray

I love Vouvray. If I could find more of Huet here, I'd load up. Sparkling chenin blanc is a wonderful thing. This is such an interesting wine. Immediately more rich, with that yeastiness that reminds you of Champagne, but showing a lot more sweet fruit. Oily, creamy fruit. Becomes very sweet on the palate. This is where things start becoming strange. Dosage is a bit of an issue. Very, very sweet.

Good, warm sparkling wine - reminds me that I should be drinking these kinds of wines more often.
