DOMAINE DES AUBUISIERES, Vouvray

The very talented winemaker Bernard Fouquet oversees 26 hectares of Chenin Blanc vineyards, handed down from one generation to the next, planted on the best clay/limestone soils in Vouvray – Le Marigny, Le Bouchet, Le Plan de Jean and Le Clos de l’Auberdiere. He works with a lutte raisonnee philosophy, using treatments only when necessary. Bernard is a strong proponent of terroir and with these wonderful flinty soils, his Cuvee de Silex exhibits a pure and linear character on the nose, fine and convincing. A great style on the palate, vibrant acidity, lovely fleshy texture, minerally and honeyed, and yet very much in the sec arena in terms of perception of sugar on the palate. This is complete, broad, vigorous and concentrated, with a great and vivacious finish.

“For some time now, Bernard Fouquet has been moving the quality of his distinctive, largely stainless steel-rendered Vouvrays into the exalted echelon of Foreau and Huet, which is to say challenging any of the world’s finest practitioners of white wine, and at an absolutely unbeatable price:quality ratio. His latest results all but confirm his arrival.” Robert Parker –  The Wine Advocate.
