Winemaker Notes

Philippe Foreau wines exhibit an extraordinary panoply of flavors and aromas of fruit, floral and earth elements. Foreau is never chapitalizes his wines and this Moelleux Cuvee is only made in years when the grapes naturally reach a high degree of ripeness.

Critical Acclaim

The Wine Advocate

'The grapes for my 2008 Vouvray Moelleux were very rich, golden, even a bit rose-colored, but not botrytized,' says Foreau, who picked it between October 15th and 20th. Vine flower, chestnut honey, Bartlett pear, and spiced pink grapefruit marmalade are suggested on the intoxicating nose and on a palate whose standoff of high acidity and high residual sugar permits free reign to its luscious, oily, honeyed richness; its spiciness; as well as its sheer refreshment. Nor does the almost endless finish of this beauty, lack for a subtly mineral dimension of salt, crustacean savor, and chalk. It should be worth following for at least a quarter century.
