Pichot Clos Cartaud Vouvray 2020
Made from 45-50 year old vines located above the village just behind Clos Saint Mathurin not far from the Vallee de Nouys where the Pichot family and winery are located.
Shows exceptional intensity and old vine depth and wonderful texture and richness balanced by 3 gms residual sugar with refreshing balanced acidity. Stunning. Only made in the very best years when Christophe feels the balance is perfect.
This is a tiny cuvee of just 3000 bottles maximum made just for the Australian market and vinified and aged in a brand new stainless steel vat. Hand-harvested from two hectares of vines that are 45-50 years old, and wild-fermented in stainless steel. The 2020 Vouvray Sec Clos Cartaud is bottled relatively early to capture the fresh fruit aromas and freshness. There's clay-limestone on the site, and the clay component gives the easy roundness in this wine. Fine, bright freshness on the finish makes your mouth water. Drinking well already despite its youth.
