Regarded as one of the top three Vouvray producers, Bernard Fouquet have been crafting some of the most serious Vouvray of the last few vintages. No one succeeds better than Bernard in capturing the mineral tones unique to Vouvray’s soil, with the marvelous balance of explosive fruit and titillating sensation of the Chenin Blanc grape. Domaine des Aubuisieres vineyard is situated on one of the most beautiful clayish-limestones soils of Vouvray. After harvesting, the pulps are prepared with non-mineralized water to reduce doses of active matter. During the pressing and cleaning out, the flow of the juice are made in inert stage under carbonic gas to avoid the oxidation of the must and minimize doses of SO2. After the static cleaning out, fermentation unfolds in barrels of oak or in thermo-regulated vats. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation of dry wines, breeding is made on fine dregs sealed by wooden bung for barrels and re-assembly for vats.
Golden yellow in color, Domaine des Aubuisieres "Bernard Fouquet" Cuvee de Silex Vouvray is a lively white evoking floral, fresh green melon, citrus and musk notes. The mouth watering palate is crisp and vibrant with excellent fruit replay accompanied by additional notes of mineral, white ginger, green almond and orange zest. Enjoy with roasted turkey or chicken, lightly spiced seafood and pasta with white sauce.
