Back to the Loire, Les Lys Vouvray, 100% Chenin Blanc, Soft Touch

Following Karine Lauverjat Sancerre for dinner with fish, i am back to the Loire with Les Lys Vouvray 2008.

Straw color, fruit notes which I could not quite pinpoint until I read 'quince'.


I would not be surprised if this soft and mellow wine won over people who say they don't like wine or go for sweeter stuff.

It is 100% Chenin Blanc and low in alcohol at 12,5% which is another good reason to buy it.

Solid under $10 buy.
