Wine Review: 2010 Didier Champalou Vouvray Sec

Didier Champalou Vouvray : Situated on the right bank of the Loire, the estate follows sustainable methods with membership in the Terra Vitis, an association that has been around for more than 10 years supporting the philosophy of sustainable viticulture. In 2005, the estate achieved sustainable certification.

The Didier Champalou Vouvray is an assemblage of many parcels, which spread across the Vouvray and neighboring communes of Rochecorbon and Vernou, which present a range of different terroirs. The wine offers delicate stone and peach aromas with hints of honey, stone fruit, lemon-lime, pear, honeysuckle and orange on the palate; light-bodied with a medium-long finish. Fish, shellfish and roasted vegetables would make a great pairing with this food-friendly wine.

Rating: Very Good (88) | $20 | 12.5% ABV
