Winemaker's Notes

Vouvray La Craie is 100% Chenin Blanc custom cuvée from hillside parcels just outside the village of Vouvray. Produced from young vines (15- 25 years old), this bottling is almost always a light demi-sec (8-12 grams of residual sugar). A delicious introduction to Chenin Blanc! It is assembled in Vouvray, sees no wood, is bottled fresh and young, and is designed to offer the striking crispness that one expects from the Loire but with a very small amount of residual sugar for an added layer of complexity.

“La Craie” (or “chalk” in French) refers to the abundance of white, soft rock in
the area known locally as “Tuffeau.” High on the hills of Vouvray, one can tour
the homes of locals who live in caves dug from this soft chalk. It is found in the
vineyards as well, ensuring good drainage down the slopes and keeping the soil
warm at night to help keep the roots from experiencing drastic temperature
changes.

Blend: 100% Chenin Blanc
