Rating: 96The dark golden-colored 2015 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Premiere Trie is super ripe and intense, yet precise and mineral on the nose where orange and dusty flavors are displayed along with some caramel flavors. Intense and juicy, with a concentrated and sweet, yet vital and elegant fruit, this Chenin has vibrant acidity. This is a full-bodied, well structured, persistent and powerful Chenin with a sweetness that is almost fully integrated. The finish is enormously vivacious and firm, and reveals a stimulating minerality.Author: Stephan Reinhardt

Concentrated, with a core of intense Jonagold apple, glazed Bosc pear, ginger cream and dried quince flavors, carried by filigreed acidity and backed by green tea, verbena, chamomile and persimmon notes. The finish is extremely long. Best from 2018 through 2040. 300 cases imported.Author: James Molesworth
The Loire River is the longest river in France and the vineyards that lie along its banks comprise the Loire Valley wine region. France's third largest wine region is home to a collection of grapes, soils, and styles with not much in common aside from a cool climate provided by the northerly latitude. The Loire is best known for its classic expressions of both dry and sweet white wines as well as dry, relatively light-bodied reds.
