Pale straw in color, with inviting aromas of white peaches, lychee fruit & limes. Here is a brightly flavored Vouvray displaying flavors of green apples, pears, green fig and mineral-scented chalk. Despite being fairly dry and crisp, there is a noticeable “honeyed” quality to this wine, which is characteristic of a well-made Vouvray, and pairs beautifully with the mildly sweet custard in Greg’s Corn Creme Brulee. In addition, the wine’s chalky minerality pairs well with the dish’s fresh corn flavors, while its well-balanced acidity stands up to the mouth-coating candied-bacon topping.
Also pairs well with appetizers, cheese, fish, fried foods, fruits, fruit-based desserts, scallops and other shellfish.
