Michel Autran, Vouvray ‘Les Enfers Tranquilles’ 2013

Veritas Imports, Glendale CA.

From forty-five year old Chenin vines planted in silex, limestone and calcaire.  Raised in both steel and wood (228L and 400L barrels).

Five years on.

Lemon yellow.   Pure stones and flowers bounce off a wall of radiance.  Mineral suggestions shimmering through folds of pear nectar fruit.  A lick of wool and hive buzz at the end.  Now.
