Sancerre and Pouilly Fume may be better known, but it is Vouvray that is the Queen of the Loire and one of the most long lived white wines lasting decades. Vincent Careme's lovely version is the most beautiful pale straw colour with an apple-y fresh bouquet, touch of lemon curd and a whiff of honeysuckle cut with a racy acidity. It is a completely dry wine that persists on the palate with a pronounced finishing flavour of quince. A superb gastronomical food matching partner, it will go with almost any kind of seafood, poultry or oriental dish. Also good with goat's cheese tart.
