Vouvray Les Enfers- Mathieu Cosme 2013
Mathieu Cosme is the fifth generation of a wine maker family who’s been producing some outstanding Chenin blanc Vouvray. “Les Enfers” is one of the best examples of a dry and aromatic Vouvray. It shows typical Chenin Blanc notes of ripe quince, apples and lime. Rich in texture with plenty of honeycomb notes that are followed by a dry zingy freshness. In a few words a pure joy with Asian cuisine

Les Enfers is a dry wine that offers more advanced aromas, rather floral and spicy on the nose and in the mouth. The overmature grapes are harvested by hand and then pressed slowly to extract a very fine juice. The fermentation is carried out naturally with indigenous yeasts in barrels of 400 liters.
