Vouvray Wine


Vouvray

Vouvray is a large, varied appellation in the Touraine region of the Loire Valley. The grape variety used is Chenin Blanc. Vouvray can be dry (usually labeled “sec”), demi-sec, sweet, or sparkling. In cooler years, most wines made are dry, off-dry, or sparkling; in the best years, the top producers come out with what Vouvray is really known for -- the exceptional, long-lived Moelleux or Liquoreux wines. Demi-Sec Vouvray can also be excellent and ageworthy. One reason the wines often benefit from a great deal of time in bottle is the extremely high natural acidity of the Chenin Blanc grape. Some of the top producers include Huet, Champalou, and Pinon. Their wines are up there with the best white wines in the world, and are very different from commercial Vouvray, which is usually a simple, off-dry white wine that does not benefit from time in bottle.

  • Didier Champalou Vouvray 2007

    Snoothrank:

    On the dry side of Vouvray, this is a pleasant, refreshing drink with green appley flavours and a sherbet zing on the end. It's a simple, unpretentious wine, and for that, a bit pricey.(Edit: This opened up a bit after an hour or two -- the sherbety acid gave way a bit, revealing some nice caraway notes. Worth the money, then.) Read More

  • Champalou Vouvray le Clos du Portail 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This dry Vourvray (Chenin Blanc) from Champalou is quite consistently delicious, but the 2005 is a step above that. It's not a wine that knocks you over the head--but give it a few minutes and it will win you over with it's ripe pear fruit, excellent acid-balance and a remarkably graceful texture. Easy to drink by itself, a real crowd-pleaser, a... Read More

  • Remy Pannier Vouvray France Loire Vouvray Table Wine 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The moment you put the wine in your mouth, it jumps off your tongue in way that almost tickles. The wine brings a crisp feel to your mouth and has a nice apple taste that is followed by the sweetness of honey and a touch of grass. A second taste yields the pear flavor that is touted on the bottles label, and the general citrusy smell develops ... Read More

  • Domaine des Aubuisieres Vouvray Cuvée Silex 2007

    Snoothrank:

    At first whiff, a basket of ripe pears and apples. It has a lush and creamy mouth feel with flavors of apples, pears, and honey. The flavors linger on the palate and gave me this vague recollection of cream soda on the finish (slightly sweet with strong acidity). Read More
