Alexandre Giquel Vouvray
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
Alexandre Giquel is a native of the Loire Valley, learning his trade from a number of organic winemakers in the area before setting up on his own. In total he has just over 3 hectares of vines growing in clay with silex which he farms by hand.
This is his incredible unfined and unfiltered dry Vouvray aged for 9 months in old oak. Lightly reductive on the nose with explosive lime, lemon and stone fruit aromas supported by hints of pastry and hay on the palate. A worthy addition to Loire's superb new wave dry Chenin scene!
