Domaine Pichot is a 24Ha family estate in Vouvray on the right bank of the Loire, where vignerons dedicate their time to the cultivation of Chenin Blanc, locally coined ‘Pineau de la Loire’, to produce dry, sweet and sparkling whites.
Demi-sec Vouvray is, after sparkling Vouvray, the most popular wine of the appellation and perhaps the most typical, showing Chenin Blanc at it most perfumed and expressive with just a delicate sweetness balancing the lively acidity.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a subtle tinge of green around the edges and a watery hue. Elevated baked pear, Jonathan apple and honeysuckle aromas mix with hints of quince and cinnamon spice. Luscious pear, baked apple and musk flavours are texturally full and round with some honeysuckle and quince elements lurking in the background. Excellent concentration finishing off dry with fresh acidity. A dash of spice emerging on the long enveloping conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
