Barouillet Coup d'Vime 2019
A very well crafted curiosity. It's taut and fresh, with lifted tropical fruit aromatics and a fleshy palate. Chardonnay is blended with Semillon, part of which gets a week of skin contact.
Chateau Barouillet has been a family business going back at least 8 generations. Vincent Alexis works alongside his father and grandfather to cultivate the land in the south west of France. Vincent is the youthful energy that behind the move to certified organic viticulture, and the estate completed this conversion in 2014. The wines are charming and generous.
