Vobridius 2018

Our journey now continues in Touraine and more exactly in Vouvray. The Vobridius cuvée refers to the first name given to the commune, which appears in writings from the end of the 8th century. The result of the collaboration between two passionate winegrowers, Philippe Brisebarre and Laurent Kraft, this Chenin blanc was developed to reflect the expression of the Vouvray terroir as faithfully as possible.


The story
A word from the winemakers - Laurent Kraft and Philippe Brisebarre :

We thought this cuvée as the purest expression of the terroir of Vouvray. For this we have selected 2 superb plots located on the first plateaux of Vouvray. The vines that grow there are known for their ability to overripen and produce naturally rich grapes.
During the harvest, we look for a profile of ripe and candied fruits.
The wine is matured for almost a year in oak barrels with regular resuspension of the
regular suspension of the lees.
