Pinon Vouvray Brut Non-Dose
100% Chenin Blanc. Pinon makes two brut sparkling wines, both of which are made with the méthode champenoise and from estate parcels of flinty clay soils over the classic Vouvray tuffeau (soft chalky limestone). The later-harvested,top-quality fruit goes into this zero-dosage bottling to allow for a better balance in the final wine. The vines for both average 45 years old and have been certified-organic since 2007.
This beautiful wine shows elegant aromas of ripe white and yellow fruits, floral and earthy with almond and bitter lemon. The palate is creamy and dense, round and ripe but with firm underlying acidity, with almond, earth and mineral notes lingering in the long finish. Enjoy it now for its beautiful depth and balance.
