Clos Naudin Philippe Foreau - Vouvray Sec 2017
Variety: Chenin Blanc
Region: Vouvray - Loire Valley
This great Vouvray estate was founded in 1923 and is now run by Vincent Foreau who took over from his father Philippe in 2016. This small and beautiful domaine has remained at just 11.5 hectares in size, across the road from the famous Domaine Huet. The family have numerous holdings that have remained the same for generations with the vast majority sitting above the village on the famed Premiere cote centred on the vineyard called ‘Les Perruches’ located beside ‘Le Mont’.
The Vouvray region is in the Touraine district of the Loire. Vouvray wines are exclusively made from Chenin Blanc. The unique chalk-limestone soil named “Tuffeau”, is the source of the identifiable mineral characters of these wines.
2017 is a classic cooler vintage for dry Vouvray yielding wines of perfume, finesse and freshness. Brilliantly focused flavours with exceptional texture and length and 5g of residual sugar.
