Details

Vouvray Clos de La Meslerie 2014 Peter Hahn, biodynamic wine, dry Vouvray, rich, complex, outstanding. Clos de La Meslerie 2014 is simply delicious Chenin Blanc! Vouvray from Peter Hahn, Clos Meslerie, quite simply, liquid gold! Peter is an American who bought the tired vineyard of Clos de la Meslerie after becoming disenchanted with his world of investment banking in Paris. He followed his passion and became a vigneron but from the very start his instincts told him the only way was the natural way. It took several years to bring life back to this tiny 4 hectare estate after two decades of conventional farming had sucked the energy from the soil and environment. A re-education in Viticulture and Enology in 2005 and several years of hard graft eventually led to the creation in 2008 of the new Clos de la Meslerie Vouvray with outstanding results. Peter has this wine in his blood. He is unusual in that he hails from a different world but has found his home and his true vocation in a small village in rural France working as a farmer. His philosophy (his own words are below) mirrors everything that we think about wine here at Buon Vino and he is an inspirational wine maker. The wine itself is nothing short of pure gold, every year different, some years drier, some years sweeter, the 2013 is virtually no residual sugar with 12% abv so might expect a leaner wine but not a bit of it. The vintage behaved differently and the wild yeasts continued to ferment the wine until the sugar was virtually gone rather than dying off. I find the 2013 an absolutely superb wine, rich enough to go with some serious flavours but so fresh, drinking it on its own with a little salty cheese is a sheer delight. Every year Peter s wine captures the soul of the Vouvray appellation and the purity, minerality and complexity of the Chenin Blanc! Salut Monsieur Peter Hahn!!!
