Bernard Fouquet Vouvray 'Cuvee de Silex' Demi-Sec
The very talented winemaker Bernard Fouquet has 26 hectares of Chenin Blanc vineyards planted on the best soils in Vouvray (clay/limestone) – Le Marigny, Le Bouchet, Le Plan de Jean and Le Clos de l’Auberdière. He works with a 'lutte raisonnee' philosophy, which they refer to as 'the thinking man’s answer to organic', using treatments only when necessary. Bernard is a great believer in terroir and with these wonderful flinty soils, his wine Cuvée de Silex exhibits superb mineral character as well as the honeyed fruit that is characteristic of Chenin Blanc. As Demi-Sec the wine retains a hint of residual sugar, though on the palate it drinks as fresh and clean as you would enjoy with a fully dry Chenin. The perfect partner to roast chicken or turkey and roasted vegetables. A grown up wine, and quite sublime.
