Story

Location
The vines are about 30 years old and the plot is well exposed, overlooking the commune of Reugny, situated to the east of the Vouvray PDO.
Terroir
The Vouvray Bio " Vineola " comes from an exceptional terroir. A flinty clay soil combined with a limestone subsoil gives it a nice freshness and vivacity. All this is well balanced by the great maturity of the grapes and the maturing on fine lees.
In the vineyard
Manual harvesting by successive selections on golden berries brought to maturity. Regular tasting of the grapes to determine the optimal harvest date. Search for ripe fruit and candied fruit profiles.
Vinification
Skin-contact maceration to extract all the aromatic potential of the grapes. Traditional fermentation (between 18 and 20°C).
Ageing
Half of the cuvée is matured on the lees and the other half in oak barrels for one year, with regular resuspension of the lees. Bottling in September.
Varietals
Chenin Blanc : 100%

Advice

Serving
