This one of better 2011 Loire's I have tried. Many show some green pyrazine character, this one is clean. It has...

The 2011 Château de Moncontour Vouvray Sec, composed of 100% Chenin Blanc that was aged for four months on lees, has intense aromas of lees, light honey/field flowers and white fruit. It is a medium bodied, dry, integrated wine, with good acidity and medium to long finish. It is young, drink 2014-2016+. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 87 pts. Tasted at 'Loire Valley Tasting' http://grapeselections.com/Loire-Valley-tasting/ in Oct/13.

A fruity style of Chenin Blanc with some grapy sweetness and honey. Finishes dry with some chalky minerality.
