As you'll see, the sweetness is encased in flintiness and acidity. They love it in Vouvray with rillettes and a crusty baguette. It also serves as a lovely apéritif.

The 2019 Les Fondraux might be a Vouvray in the demi-sec mold (residual sugar is in the region of 20g/L) but it is a contemporary interpretation of it. It's pure as well as being tender, likely down to the clay proportion of the soil as well as Chenin's naturally round shape. What elevates this wine is the lovely sinew and tension on the finish; perhaps that's the terroir's flint component. Fermented in older barrels, it is round yet refined and offers excellent purity of fruit. A demi-sec for modern drinkers.
