This wine comes from vineyards located on east-west-facing slopes at the bottom of a small valley near the city of Tours in the Loire Valley, 150 miles west of Paris. It has a straw yellow color. This slightly sweet wine has a complex, attractive bouquet of ripe pears and blackberries, with hints of peach, pineapple and litchi. It is soft, easy to drink, well balanced and expressive. An aftertaste with a touch of acidity enhances the fresh notes. This perfectly well-balanced wine would make a delicious accompaniment to duck with peaches or chicken in cream sauce.
