2017 Vouvray Sec 'Arpent', Sébastein Brunet

From 25-year old vines on a clay-flint terroir. This dry wine is very fresh and pure on the nose, with delicate green apple and citrus oil aromas and a fine floral lift. The mouthfeel is bright, zippy and crisp with good concenration and grip and a nicely nervy finish. This is a perfect wine for those looking for something dry, zesty and fresh with a lovely saline finish. 

Vouvray is a style of wine I adore and so I have been on a mission for some time to find a Vouvray to fit in to my portfolio but I'm extra fussy. I wanted something fine, mineral, fresh and mouth-watering and this is not as easy as you might think.

After years and having tasted many I am happy to say that I have found it in the brilliant wines of Sébastien Brunet. Sébastien assumed control of his family domaine in 2006 following the untimely passing of his father, and has quickly become one of the Loire's fastest rising stars. All his wines are of exemplary quality.
