Nose

If at all a Vouvray from the 2017 series olfactorily veers towards reduction and the flinty notes that come with it, then it's the Le Clos du Bourg demi-sec. There are faint hints of gunpowder here, but these also quickly dissipate with air. The accompanying notes of apple and cider combine with nuances of Virginia tobacco and smoke, further with ground stone and a little wax and wet wool, making it an archetype of Vouvray-Chenin-blanc.

Palate

The taste of the Le Clos du Bourg - as always and especially in young years - the link from the playful Haut-Lieu to the dark Le Mont. Pome fruit shows up here in an almost quaffable juicy way. The sweetness is a little more on the tip of the tongue than with the Le Mont, the wort pushes itself into the middle of the palate. Thereby the Vouvray to be bedded on a blanket of silky tannin, interwoven with the so brilliant, never intrusive, but always present acidity of this vintage, which is clear like a spring river in the Auvergne and relaxed like the Loire meandering through the chateau landscape around Blois and Tours. 2017 is just at the demi-sec already a real pleasure, and one does not even know how one can force oneself to allow this wine several more years of bottle maturity and at the same time deny oneself this pleasure for so long. And yet, this wine will continue to develop wonderfully for a long time.
