Description

A singular appellation with its 2 200 acres of Chenin spread across 8 towns around the village of Vouvray. Located on the right riverbank of the Loire River, nearby Tours, Vouvray always has been associated to vines and gastronomy. The Chenin here express itself under different aspects. According to the terroir, the wine-making process, the wines from Vouvray can be sparkling, dry, semi-dry or sweet. Chenin loves clayey lands, especially those from the Loire Valley, where it was born centuries ago. Didier and Catherine Champalou established their 20-hectare estate in Vouvray in 1984. They grow exclusively Chenin Blanc grapes and are among the leading producers in the town. Didier tends the vines and Catherine oversees the cellar. Their wines are stunning – harmonious, restrained and a true reflection of the terroir.

TASTING NOTES
A delicate straw yellow in colour. Aromas of green apples and quince. Dry, supple and elegant on the palate with further green fruit notes. The crisp finish makes this an ideal food wine.

FOOD PAIRING
Try with a wild rice salad, escalopes of pork with fennel and green bean salad or with a simple grilled trout.
