Vouvray Sec is a rare and precious off-dry style of Vouvray, hence why we have called it Cher et Tendre, after the French colloquial term of affection meaning precious or treasure. Sec Tendre is also the term the local wine growers choose to describe a style of Vouvray which captures the smooth, round and rich flavours of fully ripe Chenin Blanc which is exceptionally fruity and off-dry. This aromatic wine exhibits green apple and floral notes, exotic perfume with a fruity off-dry finish.
A streak of minerality which runs through the finish matches the wine seamlessly to creamy chicken dishes, faintly spicy Asiatic cuisine or a crisp mixed salad.
Floral and enticing on the nose, exuberantly fresh on the palate with pear drop fruit, a slightly salty edge and underlying minerality. Nicknamed la bomba this is incredibly fruity and concentrated Picpoul - yet still fine and elegant, with a very long finish.
Fine , mineral Chenin characters with gentle ripe apple aromas , honeyed aromatics and delicious greengage and citrus lemon acidity on the long finish.
