Great Value


The Bernard Fouquet Vouvray “Cuvee Silex” 2016 is an excellent example of ripe, tangy, slightly exotic and off-dry Vouvray. Candied lemon peel and light caramel nose moves to pear slices, pineapple chunks and perky acidity in the mouth. Exotic, lush and chock-full of fruity goodness, the sweetness lifts the generous flavors while not coming across as sweet. I think a sweet/salty jumbo shrimp dish (prosciutto, fruit salsa, toasty garlic) would be a great match.
