DRY VOUVRAY  

Type de vinification :

 

Real expression of an exceptional local soil in Vouvray vineyards, this wine comes from old vines on a hill-side  with South exposure, where large flint stones cover massively clay and limestone. This situation, specific to our vineyard, gives our wines an unmistakable characteristic : the famous “flinty taste”.

The grapes are pressed for 2 to 3 hours. After decanted, the juice is put for two third in tanks and the rest in oak barrels with 25 % of new wood. The spontaneous fermentation is followed by an ageing, stirring of the lees in barrels. His done during 11 months. The wine is bottled in September, after being racked two or three times and finely filtered. 

 

 

Ageing potential : 20 years or more in cellar.

 

Description :

 

This clear yellow wine with silver tints gives us a fruity and floral nose. Flint stone is revealed and harmoniously mixed with a wooden and vanilla scent. The palate is full and voluminous with acacia flavour. This is a wine strength and mineral by its origin, delicate and complex by the ageing.
