AWARDS

95/100 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Vouvray le Mont Sec is pure, precise and very flinty on the nose, which reveals a concentrated and elegant fruit with lemon and crushed stone flavors. Full-bodied, pure and piquant, with a tight and mineral structure, as well as a very persistent finish, this is a highly complex yet finesse-full Chenin with a great aging potential. I'd love to drink the 2015 today, although I know it will become much more complex over the years. The finish is enormously long and reveals fine tannins."

Vouvray, Loire Valley

Vouvray is the most famous and most respected appellation of the Loire Valley's Touraine district. They produce white wines of various styles (sweet, dry, still and sparkling), from eight villages around the medieval town of Vouvray, on the northern banks of the Loire from the Chenin Blanc grapes. Only a few wine regions in the world use Chenin Blanc to the same extent. And yet there is only a few examples having the same aromatic intensity, texture and balance in the world. One key characteristic of quality Vouvray wines is their remarkable long life; many bottles more than 30 years old often show stunning freshness and life. This is largely due to Chenin Blanc's naturally high level of acidity and intense aromatic composition. 

The vineyards around Vouvray have been producing quality white wines since the Middle Ages, so it isn't at all surprising that 'Vouvray' was one of France's very earliest official appellation titles.
