89 Vouvray Dom. du Viking

the local wine store was tasting tonight and this was on the menu.
From the first whiff of ripe grape I knew this was going to be a knock out wine. The nose was intense honey, apple, (hint of diesel?) In the mouth full and rich with a long finish. He had five Cab Francs to taste but after the Vouvray it was all downhill.
(he tasted the Vouvray where he did so people could compare it to the $10 Vouvray and see just how much difference there can be.
Needless to say I bought some (21.99US. Now I just have to come up with a good excuse.

I have had this wine several times recently. It is a good and interesting wine.
You noticed diesel also, I decanted and it blew off after 20 min.
Oddly, the corks were all kind of yukky also but not imparting bad flavor. The retailer had warned me. The wine was in caves until about 2 years ago still not labeled I was told.
