White wine. Vouvray, Loire, France. Organic. 100% Chenin Blanc. "The 2018 les Girardières from Monsieur Fouquet is bottled as a Demi Sec (maybe it is in most vintages?), but it does not state so on either the front or back labels. The wine is made from a parcel of sixty-plus year old chenin vines on a combination of clay and flint soils. The wine is sealed under screwcap, but was nonetheless singing when I opened it, revealing scents of quince, apple, a beautiful base of flinty soil tones, spring flowers, a touch of lanolin and a lovely topnote of bee pollen. On the palate the wine is deep, pure, focused and full-bodied, with a superb core of fruit, bright, zesty acids and excellent balance and grip on the long, complex and very classy finish. A superb bottle of Demi-Sec (that really deserves a natural cork Monsieur Fouquet!). 2020-2050+." — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
