Domaine Sylvain Gaudron

Vouvray is a region of the Loire Valley in France, located in the Touraine area, just east of the city of Tours. The Vouvray region has existed since the Middle Ages when the Catholic church maintained a vineyard at the local monasteries (Monk Saint Martin).  Wine cellars were built in the region from caves created from the excavation of Tuffeau rocks used to build the Chateaux of the Loire Valley.  In 1936, Vouvray was created as an Appellation d’origine controlee. The Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) is dedicated almost exclusively to Chenin blanc.

Wine production in this area is highly variable and dependent on climate conditions. Cooler years promoting the production of dry (sec) and sparkling Vouvray while warmer, more favorable vintage encourages the production of sweet moelleux or liquoreux styles produced by noble rot in a manner similar to the sweet dessert wines of Sauternes.
With the naturally high acidity of Chenin blanc, Vouvrays from favorable vintages have immense aging potential with some examples drinking well into 100 years of age.

Wines from this Winery


Domaine Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray les Vaux Louis Sec

To attain good balance, a Vouvray still wine needs to conserve a small amount of residual sugar (6 to 8g/l in our dry Vouvray). That is what gives it roundness, fruitiness in harmony with its slight acidity.

Domaine Sylvain Gaudron Vouvray La Symphonie Triple Zero

Beautiful light pale pink color. On the nose, fantastic bouquet with delicate aromas of white fruits, just - picked strawberries and floral notes. The mouth is complex with raspberry and wild strawberry notes, wild herbs, citrus, wet-stones flavors. It has a refreshing acidity - thanks to the altitude of the vineyards - and a round, long and vibrant finish.
