Varietal: Chenin Blanc
Body: medium (sparkling)
Christophe Thorigny farms 10.5 hectares in the village of Parcay-Meslay, one of the eight villages included in the Vouvray appellation. His family has owned vineyards in the village for four generations farming according to the principle of “lutte raisonnée” or minimal intervention and keeps his yields low.
For this bone dry Vouvray we get lovely notes of green apple and yeasty bready notes on the nose. More of the same on the palate with nice weight in congruence with good acidity that makes this bubbly so food friendly and just plain charming.
Sparkling, bubbly, fizzante, we love these wines. While Champagne only comes from Champagne, France (and it deserves its own name, it is a unique and special wine in this category) there are plenty of excellent champagne style wines at all price points. We look forward to sharing them with you.
