Gilles Gaudron Blanc de Chenin Vouvray Brut
Sparkling Vouvray holds a special place in our hearts here at TAWC. And this wine, THIS WINE, has become an instant favorite. It's full of personality and verve, capable of holding a conversation on it's own or join in with friends.
Gilles Gaudron's Vouvray Brut 'Blanc de Chenin' is made by the Traditional Method (the same method used to make Champagne) using 20 year old vines planted on limestone-clay soils. With its crisp acidity, complex, biscuity character and fine, persistent bubbles, this sparkling Chenin Blanc would make a great alternative to Champagne.
Vouvray is a white wine made with Chenin Blanc grapes that grow along the banks of the Loire River in the Touraine district of France. Wines range in style from dry to sweet, and still to sparkling, each with its own distinct character. Regardless of style, Vouvray is loved for its delicate floral aromas and boisterous taste that will pucker your lips and make you immediately wish for another sip. Since about 1890, four generations of the Gaudron family have lived in Vernou, running a vineyard that covers 25 hectars on a limestone-clay soil which rests on a sub-layer of tuffeau, the elegant stone used to build the Chateaux for which the region is so renowned.
This Blanc de Chenin Brut is racy, fresh and mineral driven. Medium bodied with a fine mousse, it shows delicate aromas of brioche, tilleuls flowers and Granny Smith apples. The palate is vivid with mouthwatering acidity.
