Clos Francs Moelleux 2016


Barley Sugar – Citrus – Red fruits – Mellow

Moelleux translates as ‘mellow’ and is used to describe a wine style, one of medium sweetness. With 70 grams of residual sugar this ‘mellow’ chenin blanc will happily accompany some puddings as well as savoury foods and cheese. The bright acidity common to Vouvray balances the sweetness and shows flavours of barley sugar, lemon sorbet and even lemon meringue. Think Eton mess, pavlova and fresh fruits.

Sylvain Gaudron
Producer Profile Sylvain Gaudron
Respectfully said we hope, but it is difficult to beat serious champagne - although sparkling wine is a fundamental part of all wine cultures. This Vouvray from the Loire, north of Tours, is a wine of its own land, no confusion. Gilles Gaudron is the fourth generation of the family to produce their wines. We are generally a little circumspect when it comes to sparkling wines, but Chenin Blanc, the right grape here, cellared for at least two years thus allowing the wine to develop, produces a wine that we really think is quite elegant.
