This is Chenin Blanc from one of the top producers in Vouvray. While not to the same extent, Vouvray has dealt with premature oxidation in their wines much like Burgundy. This wine has been one of those which has had issues. Luckily, there were no such issues for this bottle. Still a light gold in color. The nose is nice with minerals, slight burnt orange and quince paste. On the palate, this is dry. Minerals and burnt orange peel (like in some cocktails). There is a bit of bitterness on the finish. It is a very good wine that really begs for food to shine. Good bottles of this have a long life left.
