Vouvray Sec, ‘Les Calcaires’ Domaine de la Routeletière, 2020
£82.74/ 6 x Bottles (£13.79 each)
A classic Vouvray with exotic aromas of bruised apple and greengage, richly flavoured but balanced by a lovely saline finish. Domaine de la Rouletière is located in the heart of some of the most sought-after slopes in Vouvray. Founded in 1914, it is owned by the Gilet family, wine-growers for five generations. Owner and winemaker Jean-Marc Gilet cultivate the 27-hectare vineyard organically, respecting the environment and the terroir. At the heart of the vineyard, the domain possesses a magnificent two-storey cellar that has been carved out by the Gilet family over many generations: 800 square metres set in freestone. The wines are elegantly styled, beautifully balanced and bear all the hallmarks of superb Vouvray.
