About This Wine:
Specifically, Chenin Blanc from the Vouvray growing area along the banks of the Loire River in the Touraine District of France. A versatile grape variety, Chenin Blanc from Vouvray can be made in styles ranging from bone dry to extremely sweet.
Philippe Gaultier, a fourth-generation winemaker, prefers the dry style (ideal for enjoying as part of a meal), and takes great pleasure in helping wine drinkers understand the potential of this underrated variety. In a white wine world dominated by Chardonnay, the Chenin Blanc grape can make some senses-satiating elixirs.
From its floral aroma to its fruit basket of flavors, the Domaine du Clos des Aumones Vouvray is a Chenin Blanc that pairs perfectly with everything from pork chops to roasted chicken. It’s a wine that Philippe Gaultier counts among his finest — vintage after vintage.
