Winemaker's Notes

Pretty light gold color, with a nose of citrus fruit and apple. Balanced on the palate with hints of white flower.

Critical Acclaim

"With their 2007 Vouvray Sec, the Champalous are back on form, and with a vengeance! A fetching nose of quince, orange, lime, narcissus, freesia, sweet corn, and green tea ushers in a luscious yet remarkably delicate palate, with a perfectly judged hint of sweetness (this is what locals call sec tendre) supporting pear, quince, and citrus. Savory salinity, a hint of caramel, chalk, and citrus zest as well as a suggestion of vanilla cream inform an ear-to-ear finish of lift and refinement. Enjoy this over the coming 2-3 years."
