Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vouvray de Gautier is made from a selection of ripe Chenin Blanc grapes from many of his Domaine’s vineyard parcels with flint-clay soil. Grass is planted between the vine rows to reduce yields and create a healthy natural ambiance. The wine matures on its fine lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks over seven months. Three is no malolactic fermentation. Bottling in early April to preserve the freshness and natural aroma of the wine. The fruity acidity of the Chenin Blanc is balanced with apricot and pear fruit with and honey notes and just enough residual sugar to attain a slightly off-dry finish.

Tasting Note

Sensation of flint minerality, citrus and lychee aromas. Balance between residual sugars and acidity.

flavours of citrus and white peach. Vegan.

Food Pairing

Perfect as an aperitif or with savoury tapas. Also a great partner to gambas, Indian cuisine or grilled meat.
