Bernard Fouquet Domaine des Aubuisieres Vouvray Cuvée de Silex: a Review

Wine is as good as life to a man, if it be drunk moderately: what life is then to a man that is without wine? for it was made to make men glad.
    —Ecclesiasticus, ch. 38, v. 1

(Our sample bottle was purchased by us at standard retail.)


About Bernard Fouquet Domaine des Aubuisieres Vouvray Cuvée de Silex

Bernard Fouquet is an old hand at Vouvray, perhaps one of the very top makers. This dry Vouvray (not a common thing, though not exactly rare) is priced rather like an entry-level Vouvray. It is quite widely available at prices from $17 up to $21, averaging about $19 (per Wine Searcher Pro).


Bernard Fouquet Domaine des Aubuisieres Vouvray Cuvée de Silex: Tasting Impressions

Like too many wines these days, out of bottle this opened with a blast of sulfur. When that finally blew off—which took a while—what we found was a nice, genteel, undemanding little wine of modest varietal character; no great subtlety or complexity (things that would be a surprise at this price point for a Vouvray), but a nice balance of acid and mild fruit, the latter more pear-like than peach, with the characteristic faint overlay (or underlay) of honey.

This wine would be a lot more interesting at a slightly lower average price; nevertheless, it is a quiet and pretty little thing with charm. Recommended.
