Tanguy Perrault, child of the ’75 vintage, obtained a BTS certificate in viticulture/oenology, spent time as a vineyard worker in Bordeaux, and even became cellar master at an estate in Vouvray. But in 2008, after one day his employer snapped at him, “You’ll never be able to work for someone else,” he decided it was time to work for himself. Joined in his slightly mad adventure was his oenology professor girlfriend, Anne-Cécile Jadaud. The two started out with just 0.8 hectares of vines in Vouvray. But together, they would begin to re-energize this appellation faced by growing competition from AOC Montlouis across the river. Little by little, they have expanded their estate over the last ten years, and today hold 7 hectares of vine parcels in Premières Côtes de Vouvray as well as a parcel adjacent to Clos-du-Bourg (therefore characterized by its exceptional minerality and rich texture!). Take note: the yields are limited for extreme quality, precision work for confidential, haute-couture wines indeed!
A cuvée that will delight fans of dry white wine as an aperitif! A nose with notes of white fruits, almonds, and linden blossom... The body of the Chardonnay is balanced by the minerality of the Chenin, it’s nicely rounded in the mouth but then the finish is surprisingly saline. Beautiful.
Nose with notes of citrus, of candied lemon peels, and a very beautiful hint of minerality. Palate: a thin and elegant bubbly, a thirst-quenching freshness perfect from the apéritif to desert! Invigorating!
