Let my Vouvray Breathe
by rpm_56
At first I was totally disappointed in this Vouvray. I've had some wonderful ones in the past, but on first opening (stored at 54 degrees in the wine cooler) the Aigle Blanc was a huge letdown. Very faint nose of sour peaches and not much else and a tart and metallic mouth-feel. I thought I had gotten a bad bottle or opened a cruddy $5 white. But alas, I remembered the key ingredient to discovering a wines full potential, let it breathe for at least an hour. Viola, all the difference in the world. The nose developed into a ripe, white fruit and blue stone nose, the mid palate was again tart but silky smooth with a whisper of sweetness. My wife loved it as well.

The fragrance and taste of this wine will resonate with those familiar with Poniatowski's older, sweeter, and lusher offerings. This one, in contrast, is tart and bone dry. Immediately out of the refigerator and bottle, it struck me as a "ghostly image" of more "substantial" brethren. However, over the course of an hour or so, the wine opened, evolved, and provided a very rewarding experience. It also proved to be an excellent accompaniment to shellfish. Well worth the effort, this is indeed a wine for wine drinkers.

In all styles, expect high levels of acid that can provide tremendous amounts of balance to these wines...
