The 2016 vintage was another fantastic vintage in the Loire Valley and the Chenin Blancs from our friends at Vigneau-Chevreau are stunningly delicious. For those who are looking for something extra special we're are excited offer their special limited cuvee, Clos de Rougemont, which comes from one of the oldest vineyards in Vouvray. It has a beautiful golden color and generous mouth feel. Imagine ripe quince, white peach, pear and honey aromas. The flavors are pure with great acidity and minerality.


Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau Clos de Rougemont 2016

$23.99 per bottle

Vigneau-Chevreau is an exceptional, small family producer based in Vouvray. Stephane Vigneau spearheaded the transition of the estate to biodynamic farming, which was officially certified in 1997. Bio means no chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. Stephane uses no chemicals at all in the vineyards or in the winery. The wines are entirely hand-harvested and use only natural yeasts for fermentation, which contribute to the pure, natural flavors of the wines and it's terrior.

Clos Rougemont is one of the oldest vineyards in Vouvray. For centuries it was owned and managed by the historically important Abbaye de Marmountier (one of the grandest churches in western Europe during medieval times). The Vigneau-Chevreau family has virtually re-created this vineyard, bringing this important site back to its former grandeur.

Now after completely replanting the vineyard with a selection of Chenin Blanc vines from their best terroirs and their meticulous vineyard management Clos de Rougemont is an exceptional, limited cuvee that showcases the best wine ever from this historic vineyard. 

Clos de Rougemont is a stunner and it is dry. It has a beautiful golden color and generous mouth feel. Imagine ripe quince, white peach, pear and honey aromas. The flavors are pure with great acidity and minerality.

The wine is dry, but not a steely, steely dry. Remember this is made biodyamically so you taste what Mother Nature provides. If you care to age this wine it will only become more luscious and rich.

Quality is very important at Domaine Vigneau-Chevreau and it is instantly apparent in this wine. Don't miss out on this rare offer of this super-special cuvee of Chenin Blanc. - Cynthia Hurley French Wines
