Benoit Gautier Vouvray Argilex 2015

Benoit Gautier Vouvray Argilex 2015


The Loire Valley was once the ocean floor, so soils are filled with saline minerals that remain from a coral band that once covered the area. This sustainable bottling made by a 7th generation winemaker is a shining example of the region’s most classic varietal. Only 600 cases produced.

Tasting Notes: This white is reminiscent of lemon bars and white grapefruit, and softly enlaced by subtle salinity: deliciously complex!

Pairings: Ceviche, white fish, ricotta toast.

Varietal: Chenin Blanc
Soil Types: clay, siliceous soil
Fermentation: stainless steel fermentation
Aging: 7 months in stainless steel on the lees
Special Notes: 4 grams per liter residual sugar
