Domaine Vincent Careme Vouvray Sec 2021
When we think about the great, ageworthy white wines of the world, Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley has gotta be in the mix, particularly Vouvray. And if you’re in doubt of that, this should get it over the line. With a richness and density of fruit flavour, there’s still a beautiful line of fresh acidity and a dry finish. The aromatics develop in the glass - marmalade, apricot, baked pear and wet stone. It's well worth taking your time over.
One of the leading lights of modern Vouvray, Vincent and Tania Carême have quickly grabbed the attention of the world’s wine trade with their focused yet expressive styles of Chenin Blanc. They established the estate in 2004, with a weight of winemaking experience behind them. With organic and biodynamic practices in play across their 17 hectares of vineyards, there’s integrity as well as quality in these wines.
