Vintage 2011

This wine ships within Massachusetts only. The Brunet family has been producing wine in the village of Vouvray for eight generations. They work 14 hectares of Vineyard on clay, limestone and flinty soils. The wine is vinified and aged in three cellars cut into the limestone hillsides. The wines are all harvested by hand never chaptalized. All elavage is done in stainless steel to preserve the freshest of the fruit. The primary focus of the estate is on sparkling wines of which they produce 80,000 bottles per year. Another 20,000 Bottles of still wines are produced which range in style from the very crisp, dry sec to the very sweet, age worthy Moelleux. The still wines have the classic style of Chenin Blanc from the Village of Vouvray. They are bursting with tart, green apple fruit and given complexity by the goutte de terroir of limestone, flint and minerals.Although there is the full range of wine from dry very sweet, all the wines are balanced by a lively, bright, fresh acidity. These wines take age exceedingly well and develop nuances and complexity with time in bottle. Because of their intensity and crispness, they are wonderful food wines. These are classic vins de terroir Which will age exceptionally well. Rich and powerful, they are among the best produced in the appellation.
