Exploring Vouvray with Christy Canterbury MW
This past month we had the good fortune of spending an hour discussing the fabulous wines of Vouvray with none over than Christy Canterbury MW. I've edited down our hour long exploration of Vouvray into 10 short videos where Christy and I touch on things like the  importance of lees aging, in regards to Sparkling Vouvray in particular, the terroir of Vouvray, and some of the trials and tribulations growers have faced over the recent vintages.
 
You might be surprised to find that our tasting was split between Sparkling Vouvray and Vouvray Sec. It is quite likely that most people out there are more familiar with the sweeter styles of Vouvray, which can be fabulous, but as we rediscover while tasting these four wines: drier examples of Vouvray are simply some of the best wines int he world, and because they are relatively undiscovered, they remain some of the best values. Join us and find out more about Vouvray and why you should be trying some today!

    Another good one, Greg. Over the (many) years, I've probably proportionately drunk 65/25/10 dry Vouvray to sparkling to sweet. So Vouvray Sec is hardly news over here. Though I do think the fact that you bring attention to great value sectors and niches across the wine world probably works against you (and even more me) when it comes to subsequent purchasing power... ;-(

    Keep up the good work! ;-)
