This wine gives a real expression of the exceptional local soil in the vineyards of Vouvray, this Vouvray Sec Silex comes from old vines on a south facing hill. The terroir here consists of large flints, solid, clay and limestone. This situation is specific to this vineyard and gives the wines an unmistakable characteristic: the well-known '' flinty flavor ''
The grapes are pressed for 2 to 3 hours. After decanting, two thirds of the juice is put in tanks and the rest in oak barrels with 25% new wood. After spontaneous fermentation, 11 months of ripening follow. The wine is bottled in September after crossing it two or three times and fine filtered.
Aging potential: 20 years or longer in the basement.
Now cultivated by Bernard Herivault and his son, this vineyard is committed to proudly preserving the traditions of cultivation and production of their vines, resulting in tight but creamy viscous wines that display an abundance of qualities of fresh lime andfennel seeds to dry savory "flinty" tones.
