Wine Tasting Note: Philippe de Sivray Vouvray, 2004, Loire, France.
Listed by Oddbins for £5.49.
Personal preference edges towards a touch more development in Loire Chenin's - at the moment this ain't bad with a rounded palate laced with pear and custard flavours but with a touch more age should reveal more depth in the way of quince and cress. The finish harbours the acidity, cutting through the touch of sweetness to end dry and crunchy.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100

A splash or two of this white soaked some Agen prunes overnight that were then utilised in a creamy Porc Aux Pruneaux de Tours (Pork and Prunes) dish - not a bad match. Certainly good with the cream sauce but perhaps lacking a just a touch in sweetness to match the prunes. Good though in keeping everything regional - the town of Tours being just a hop from the Vouvray region of the Loire.
