For lovers of “classic” Vouvray vintages, the 2017 Clos Naudin Vouvray Sec should set the heart racing. Extremely elegant, with notes of white flowers, honey, melon and spice. Restrained power comes to mind, and the wine bears more than a passing resemblance to dry Mosel Riesling. Clear and cool and made to be a very different beast to the Demi-Sec. Beautiful.
2017 is a classic cooler vintage for dry Vouvray yielding wines of perfume, finesse and lip-smacking freshness. Aromas of pear candied fruit and spice with hints of honey and that distinctive chalkiness that is so typical of great Vouvray. Fine, brilliantly focused flavours with exceptional texture and length. 5 gms residual.
