Description

Wine Advocate 99 pts -The stunning, virtually perfect, 1997 Vouvray Moelleux Cuvee Constance (named after his daughter) sports 150 grams of residual sugar per liter, 7.5 grams of acidity, and 12.5% alcohol. Tasting this sublime dessert wine brought tears to my eyes. It is so captivatingly pure, focused, and intricate as to be all but impossible to adequately describe. Its green and straw color reveals hints of gold. Aromatically, it titillates with scents of apricot jam, candied grapefruits, quince, bergamots, and flowers. On the palate fresh peaches, citrus fruits, honey, acacia blossoms, quinine, chalk, and lemony mangoes can be found. Additionally, this medium-to-full-bodied, penetrating, yet perfectly balanced wine has a finish that seemingly lingers forever, revealing even more waves of minerals and fruit. It will require patience yet should easily evolve for 50 years or more. Bravo!

Neal Martin 97 pts - Tasted at Bordeaux Index. According to Pierre Rovani, the Cuvee Constance comes in with 150gms of residual sugar…not that you would notice on this exceptional wine, thanks to the 7.5gms acidity. Deep amber in hue, the nose is actually more reticent than the ’95 at the beginning, although is blossoms with barley sugar, toffee apple, marzipan and melted candle wax. The palate is beautifully balanced with vibrant honeyed fruit intermingled with mango, quince, barley sugar, lime and peach. Very focused, brilliant executed, this is a deftly made sweet Vouvray that delivers with style and panache. Delicious. Drink now-2035+
