Winemaker's Notes

L'Ecole Nº 41 has produced this old vine, Vouvray style Chenin Blanc since 1987. Jean Ferguson, L'Ecole Nº 41's founding winemaker, loved this wine and crafted her version of Vouvray through cold fermentation to enhance the fruity and floral esters. Pronounced with a French accent as 'Walla Voila' or here it is!!, this regional, whimsical pun captures the lively and vibrant flavors of this varietal.

This fresh and delightfully fruity Chenin Blanc shows brightly perfumed peach, honey and orange blossom aromas with flavors of fresh apricot and pear on a floral, lightly sweet finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Lemon and lanolin on the nose. Juicy white peach flavor complemented by a mineral aspect. Crisp but not hard, with very good intensity to the lemon and mineral flavors. The wine's ten grams per liter residual sugar is more apparent in its supple texture than in any obvious sweetness. Finishes with very persistent fruits and minerals."
