From the importer:
Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau has been a family run estate since 1875. During that time, each of five generations has benefited from the vast experience in viticulture and vinification that has been handed down. Today the domaine is under the meticulous care of brothers Stephane and Christophe Vigneau. The 28 hectare Domaine consists of vouvrillon soil made up of limestone, clay and silex, with an abundance of limestone or flint rocks on the surface. This soil is most favorable to the cultivation of Chenin Blanc, giving the wine its aromatic diversity of ripe quince, fresh grapes and acacia honey.
The 2014 Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Vouvray Cuvee Silex Sec begins with a pleasing and fresh aroma of apricot, apple, honey and a touch of baking spice. The wine tastes lightly sweet and very fresh with lots of citrus, green apple, a bit of tropical fruit and more apricot. With a wonderful stony minerality and bright acidity, it is just a pleasure to drink. It ends fresh and dry with good length. This would be another nice selection for your Thanksgiving table.
