2011 Bernard Fouquet Domaine des Aubuisières Vouvray Cuvée de Silex

Domaine Aubuissieres VouvrayI do hope the “t” in Fouquet is silent. Imported by World Wine Estates.

Extremely nutty aromas. Usually a good sign. Fairly typical fruit flavours; stewed apple, stonefruit and green pear. Not an immoderate expression of Chenin Blanc. Has a bit of celery and parsley hanging around. Suggestions of honey but no more than that. Soft-ish mouthfeel. Ok length, chalky minerality, dry finish. Fair price for what’s on offer and could possibly rate a point higher. Scratches an itch. 88 Good
