Guy Saget Marie de Beauregard Vouvray 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Very expressive nose of tropical fruit
Full bodied and richly textured on the palate
Sweet layers of fruit, honey, and ginger with some underlying acidity that keeps it fresh on the finish
While Vouvray comes in a variety of styles from dry to sweet, this one is big and a touch sweet- on the more opulent end of the scale. Made from Chenin Blanc, there's a lot of fruit to appreciate here along with some honey and spice. It's a well made wine and one that is easy to enjoy. Expect to pay around $18, and raise a glass!
