Winemaker Notes

Clos de Nouys Vouvray Sec is pale yellow in color with silver tints. It is fruity on the nose with white flowers and redcurrant notes. On the palate it is clean and well-balanced with dried fruit aromas.

Wine Spectator
A bracing, fresh style, with driven green apple, fig and green almond notes backed by a vibrant lime zest-filled finish. Very tangy. Drink now through 2013. 5,000 cases made.

Clos de Nouys Winery Image
Acknowledged for its quality by top professionals in the wine trade, the Clos de Nouys is a 25 acre estate within the Vouray appellation, consisting of vines averaging 35 years old. This is one of the oldest wine-making estates in the A.O.C. area: its wines were served on the Normandie transatlantic liner in 1936 and its parcels of vines were already listed amongst the best sites on the 1907 geological maps.

Their sturdy roots continue to maintain and further the Clos de Nouys reputation, both locally and further afield, thanks to its impressive record of achievements, based on a solid foundation of hard work and the ongoing quest for quality, creativity and innovation.

Touraine, France

An important white wine appellation in the Touraine and one of the top in all of the Loire, Vouvray uniquely specializes in a wide range of styles from dry to sweet, and still to sparkling, each with its own definitive character. Vouvray is almost always 100% Chenin blanc (however up to 5% Menu Pineau is theoretically allowed but not often used).

Vouvray is also the name of a pretty little town just east of Tours on the northern bank of the Loire—its vineyards surround it to the northeast. Houses and cellars are carved out of the local tuffeau, a chalky or sandy, fine-grained limestone. Vineyards inhabit clay and gravel topsoil over tuffeau on the plateau, the best of which have a slight slope with a southerly aspect.

Chenin blanc’s high acidity and natural adaptability allow it to produce a wide range of styles with enormous success. Styles under the Vouvray name include sparkling, both Brut and Demi-Sec and still: Sec (dry) and Tendre (off-dry) as well as Demi-Sec (noticeably sweet), Moelleux (very sweet) and Liquoreaux (botrytized). Most can age about five years but the best quality versions will continue to improve over decades.

Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
