White wine. Vouvray, Loire, France. Organic. 100% Chenin Blanc. "The 2018 Vouvray “Cuvée de Silex” from Bernard Fouquet is a Sec bottling, though this information is not on the front or back labels. It is also sealed under a screwcap, which I wish would be replaced by a natural cork by Monsieur Fouquet, but that said, I have yet to see any real reduction issues with this bottling when it is young. The 2018 version is a fine example of the vintage, offering up a deep and youthful nose of quince, a touch of pineapple, flinty soil tones, lanolin and white flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, ripe and full-bodied, with lovely focus and balance, an excellent core of fruit and soil signature, good, solid acids (2018 is not a particularly high acid vintage) and impressive length and grip on the nascently complex finish. This is first class Vouvray, crafted from fifty to sixty year-old Chenin vines, and which, like all top examples, will probably drink pretty well for a year or two and then close down until its tenth birthday, when the real fireworks will begin. 2020-2050+." — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
