Monmousseau Vouvray 2003

In a previous post I mentioned that I had moved offices with work, and therefore have a few new wine merchants to try out. This wine is from Nicolas, a French-owned wine merchant that has a shop (among many) on Fleet Street.

The wine is a slightly off-dry Chenin Blanc. The main characteristic present is honey, along with rotten-apple notes that reminded me of scrumpy cider. A touch of sweetness and good acidity. Not massively complex, but this is a good bargain - I can't remember the exact price but it was on offer for around £6-something.

It's in very good shape for a 2003; Vouvray has a reputation for producing wines can age forever. This could definitely continue for a few more years if desired.
