Wine Review: 2010 Domaine Bourillon-Dorleans Sec La Coulée d’Argent Vouvray

Domaine Bourillon-Dorleans Sec: Founded in 1921, Domaine Bourillon-Dorléans covers roughly 50 acres of vines in the commune of Rochecorbon, exporting 85% of their wine abroad. The final product shows the care that went into the blending regimen and the quality of grapes sourced.  On the nose, a pretty little dance of pear, green apple and apricot evolve from the glass. The Domaine Bourillon-Dorleans Sec has invigorating flavors of honey, lime and mineral finishes focused, tight and angular. It would make a perfect accompaniment to a roasted squash soup or lobster with a ginger lime butter sauce. For desert, a goat cheese and fig crostata with an almond crust would work well. Drink now through 2014.

    Sounds delicious and the roasted squash soup looks tasty. Do you have a recipe to share?

    I picked up plenty of Vouvray for the holidays. It is very versatile with foods and I have to try one with your roasted squash soup or lobster dish! Merry Christmas!

    Karen and Ryan, I’ll see if I can get Marc to share his recipe. It was a great soup! And the lobster/lime/Vouvray was awesome too.
