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.

    honeysuckle, pineapple. Slightly off dry. Tasty overall. I never drink Chenin Blanc so I wasnt sure what to expect. I think, not sure...im not a pro that I would like this wine to be a bit less sweet and probably more acidity. Still great with a fresh salad for dinner. Read More

  • Vaufuget Vouvray 2011


    Slightly off dry (it reminded me of riesling), this is a well balanced chenin blanc with lots of acid and notes of green apple and honey with a touch of lime and some slightly salty minerality. Good length with a dry finish. (Proved to be a versatile cheese wine - the sweetness bounced well off both blue cheese and parmesan) Read More
