Vineyard Information: Vouvray is made solely from Chenin Blanc. All Huët grapes are harvested by hand. All of the estate vineyards are located on Vouvray’s esteemed Première Côte. The Côte’s limestone-rich clay soils yield wines of intensity and great longevity. The estate’s first vineyard, Le Haut-Lieu, was purchased in 1928. Its nine hectares have the richest soils and, generally, yields the most precocious wines.
Tasting Notes: Lovely aromas of exotic fruit in the glass. A youthful wine that displays elegance and balance on the palate, showcasing the terroir of Haut-Lieu. A slight touch of grapefruit and lemon acidity on the finish adds to the liveliness in this dry Chenin Blanc. It is drinking fantastically at the moment.
