1996 Francois Pinon Vouvray Premiere Trie, 750ml

Availability: In stock (1)

A rare back-vintage release of Pinon's amazing organic Chenin Blanc. A moelleux wine it is an slightly sweet style, but that is necessary to help the wine age gracefully as the sugars naturally preserve the wine. The prolonged bottle aging allows for secondary notes of minerality and herbality to appear that are absent in younger wines, yet this bottle has retained a good deal of the honey and green apple notes common in the variety. Premiere Trie indicates that the grapes are from the first pass through the vineyard, getting only the best berries. Complex and elegant it is worth splurging on and possibly even laying down for a few more years yet.
