La preuve que le chenin est bien un cépage polyvalent, et que lorsque le climat le permet, il peut donner de véritables pépites en liquoreux. C'est ici, sur des sols argilo-calcaires ou argilo-siliceux qui recouvrent la craie "tuffeau", que ces vins aux notes d'acacia sont produits. More info
Located upstream from Tours in the northern Loire region, the Vouvray vineyard is planted on clay-siliceous or clay-limestone topsoils over "tuffeau" chalk. Production here is split between still (dry, semi-dry or sweet depending on the years and sun) and sparkling wines, produced using traditional methods of a second fermentation process when bottled. The mellow wines feature the word "moelleux" on their labels, and are produced when the weather conditions are right (sunny autumn periods). Over-ripe grapes affected by noble rot are harvested via sorting. With age, these rich, mellow wines acquire complex aromas on par with great fortified wines: ripe quince, acacia, almonds and honey. They can be aged for up to a century.
