Alexandre M Vouvray Tendre La Serpette
Alexandre M
France - Loire Valley - Vouvray

La Serpette (pruning knife) is one of the most important vintner's tools - a symbol that enhances the significant role of the manual work in winemaking that reflects and highlights the typicity of the terroir. Wine is not "made" in the cellar as everything starts in the vineyards, from the vineplant and the grape.

The wine offers a beautiful nose of coconut and subtle vanilla. The very "Caribbean" mouthfeel exhibits nutmeg and brown sugar flavors, white rum and candied citrus fruits. Like a sweet wine, without the sugar.
