"As the vines have aged, the monopole Clos de Rougemont, from a small vineyard close to Tours, has even greater depth of flavour, and a delicious long dry finish. It is planted on pure limestone soil and vinified in barrel with a tiny proportion of new oak. A truly stellar Vouvray! "
The Vigneau-Chevreau family have been making wine since 1875, and the 30 hectare domaine is planted entirely with Chenin Blanc. The late Jean-Michel Vigneau-Chevreau saw the benefits of organic viticulture in the early 90s and by 1999 the Domaine was certified organic. The new generation of Vigneaus have gone one step further by becoming one of only two estates in Vouvray to be certified Biodynamic.
