Winemaker's Notes:

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”.

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.


Wine Spectator 91 Points

A very fresh, dry style, showing great cut to the pear, green plum, white peach and ginger notes. The long, floral finish is finely tuned. Very pure. Drink now through 2016. 550 cases made.–JM
