Vouvray Wine


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.

    Nice mineral and honey notes on nose. A touch sweet which works well for Chenin. Did not go well with some salumi, but was good with cheese. Read More

  • Foreau Vouvray Moelleux Réserve Clos Naudin Vouvray 1990


    Richly aromatic with a classic wool and oyster nose right of the bat that gains fresh fig and smoke notes with air. Big and sweet on entry with huge sugar balanced by huge acids. There is a big buckwheat honey tone and honeydew melon fruit with apricot and almond notes slowly emerging. This very front loaded with fading intensity on the backend ... Read More

  • Huët Vouvray Moëlleux le Mont 1997


    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...

    Words continue to fail to describe how infinitely drinkable this wine is. ... ... ... sharp or dry notes, this Vouvray moves equally well at fast and slow paces (i.e.: you can slam this mother down like Blue Ruin, but not, it should be said, because you have to).
