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.

  • Huët Vouvray Moëlleux le Mont 1997

    Snoothrank:

    This has beautifully purity on the nose with beautiful spiced apricot notes, waxy fruits, and grace notes of peach tea and vanilla custard. Deep and perfumed. In the mouth the tremendous acidity keeps this very lively and allows the mineral notes to cut and contrast the honey dipped apricot fruits. Superb balance and quite long this is just a b...

  • François Pinon Vouvray Cuvée Tradition 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Some funk on the nose, but eventually honey comes through as well. This wine falls in the alternative sparkler category but there's some real complexity here. Read More
