Vincent Carême Vouvray Sec 2015

I visited Vincent Carême a year ago, and loved his wines, as well as Vouvray, which makes some of the most compelling Chenin Blancs you could hope for (as well as some bad ones, alas). This is the sort of wine I like: it’s not easy, but instead it is multifaceted, taking its time to reveal different sides to itself. It has lots of personality, and it expresses its place really well.

Domaine Vincent Carême Vouvray Sec 2015 Loire, France
From soils of clay and flint, this is a piercingly dry Chenin Blanc with lovely acidity, and complex notes of ripe pear and baked apple, together with almond and straw notes. Initially it seems a bit oxidative, but on the second day it develops a bit more steely, mineral presence, and the apple and pear are joined by some tangerine notes. Really interesting expression of Chenin, and great value, too. 93/100
