Vouvray Sec, 'Les Aumones' - 2022
A second-generation Vouvray grower, Florian struck out on his own after spending six years working alongside his father and uncle at the family estate. He farms six hectares in the village of Rochecorbon on the western side of Vouvray. The soils are a classic blend of clay and limestone and the domaine has been certified organic from the beginning. Winemaking here is simple - fruit is whole-cluster pressed, put in older barrels for both alcoholic and malo-lactic fermentations and aged on fine lees for four to five months. 'Les Aumones' is bottled fully dry and unfined, with just a light filtration. No SO2 added until bottling. This Chenin Blanc is characterized by citrus notes with a hint of mandarin. The palate shows distinct freshness with an enticing salinity.
