Marc Bredif Vouvray 2014
The wine is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose, there is a fine bouquet full aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit such as pears. One finds citrus notes such as grapefruit. The attack is gentle with a lovely vivacity where one finds agreeable notes of grapefruit on the lingering finish. It is a lovely wine, ripe and refreshing. A bright, high-toned style, with ginger, white peach and green apple notes that race along, backed by a green fig accent on the finish. This shows good length and focus.
