Vouvray

France

Description

Located on the Northern bank of the Loire River in France, the Vouvray area is famous for its Chenin Blanc and arguably produces some of the world's best examples of the grape.

The Chenin Blanc here ranges from dry (sec) through sweet (moelleux) and can also be found in some of the excellent sparkling wines available. Due to the noticable variations in weather, the characteristics of the wines can differ enormously from vintage to vintage. Notable wineries in Vouvray include Domaine du Clos, Domaine Huët and des Aubuisières.
