Tuffo Vouvray Sec, Damien Pinon

£23.50

Deliciously crisp Chenin Blanc

Damien Pinon is the third-generation winemaker on his 25 hectare family property in the commune of Vernou-sur-Brenne, which he manages with his wife, Ingrid. They only make wines from Chenin Blanc. They utilise sustainable viticultural management of their 30 year old vines in accordance to the means of lutte raisonée (‘the reasoned struggle’). All wines undergo wild fermentation and are aged in traditional cellars dug straight into the tuffo. No fining or filtration is done before bottling, resulting in rich, balanced expressions of the joys of Chenin Blanc from Vouvray.

Yields are carefully managed and the grapes are hand harvested to ensure only quality fruit is selected.  The wine was aged in barrel on lees until early spring, when it was bottled. Bright citrus fruits on the nose. The palate has superb minerality paired with light citrus fruits and a vibrant finish.
