Domaine Francois Pinon Vouvray Silex Noir 2018

  • v90



We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Available for:
100% Chenin Blanc. Silex noir is a rare black flint found almost exclusively in this tiny corner of Vouvray, the Vallée de Cousse. it lends its name to this bottling, one of Pinon's two demi-sec bottlings (other is "Trois Argiles"). "Silex Noir" comes mainly from 2 parcels totaling 3.7 hectares on a south-southeast slope. The flinty soils drain well and thus are warmer and help ripen grapes earlier than in other parcel.

Pinon's demi-sec often might be termed tendre, with a lot of tension. But this falls on the sweeter side,a true demi-sec with 26 grams per liter residual sugar. Aromas of flavors of ripe pear and apricot and less floral the 2017. Lots of solid minerality throughout, though softer than 2017. Aged 6-7 months in a mix of large and small older barrels.
