94Wine Spectator

Green plum and verbena note...with a flash of quinine on the finish. This is juicy...with the core of ample pear, quince and ginger flavors...

91The Wine Advocate

...lean, pure, fresh and aromatic on the flinty/herbal nose... Round, lush and silky-elegant on the palate, this is a juicy and very aromatic Chenin Blanc with delicate mineral and tannic grip.


France, Loire Valley, Vouvray

Vouvray is on the right bank of the Loire River, in one of the most picturesque and photographed regions of France. It is close to the city of Tours and the many famous châteaux of the Loire Valley. The appellation takes its name from the commune of Vouvray and it was awarded appellation d’origine contrôlée status in 1936. The 5,000 vineyard acres within the appellation are almost exclusively planted to Chenin Blanc, though the white grape Arbois is permitted. The Chenin Blanc wines of Vouvray are noted for their naturally high acidity, and the wines can be made in a variety of styles from dry to sweet, and sparkling wines are also allowed. The wines are also notable for their ability to age. Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley’s finest producers are highly prized by wine enthusiasts with a taste for distinctive whites.


White Wine, Chenin Blanc

This light-bodied white wine grape has zest and versatility depending on its style. It is grown extensively in South Africa, where wineries produce dry wines. Traditional French Chenin Blancs are sweet. It is closest to Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc.
