The area covered by the vouvray appellation opens up on the eastern edge of Tours, and stretches across 7 communes on the right bank of the Loire and along the edge of its tributary, the Brenne.
The wine is exclusively made from Chenin blanc. It has a strong, bright robe, from straw yellow for sparkling and slightly sparkling wines, to a golden colour with amber glints for very sweet wines when mature.
Vouvray wines are always very flattering in their youth (acacia, rose, citrus and brioche for sparkling Vouvrays), and evolve towards candied and crushed notes of apricot, quince and especially floral honey.
Depending on how sweet they are, the wines can be tender, mellow, ample or full, but always show great freshness. Dry white Vouvrays are rich and distinctive.
