Overview of the Wine

At the heart of a vineyard that covers 2,000 hectares near the city of Tours, Christophe Boutet cultivates 12 hectares of vineyards in the appellations Vouvray and Montlouis-sur-Loire. His Chenin grow on clay-limestone soils with different plots, some with terraces overlooking the river, others on hillsides, but always in contact with the ‘tuff ’ as it is called there (a sedimentary rock unique to the Loire Valley). The Loire Valley is among the world’s most recognizable wine regions. As France’s most diverse wine region, many of the vineyards are located along the river from north central France to the Atlantic coast. At almost 75,000 hectares and 5,000 vines per hectare, the Loire region is close to two thirds the size of the Bordeaux wine region. Christophe Boutet is the co-manager (one of only two employees) at Domaine Boutet Saulnier, and has been there since founding it in 1997. He has since produced a range of wines including sparkling wines, sec and demi-sec wines

 

This is a stunning Vourvay for a ridiculously great price that we just tasted a few days ago. Boutet Saulnier's was founded in 1997 using vineyards right next to the famed Huet in Vouvray. While they don't outdo their neighbors, they get very close, and at half the price, it's a no-brainer. Christophe Boutet is one of only two employees and works 12 hectares of Chenin vines spread over a few different parcels planted on clay and limestone soils.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine has stunning aromas of white flowers, lemongrass, minerals, citrus, and saline explode from the glass. Simultaneously, there is a fantastic texture with perfectly ripe fruit balanced by excellent acidity on the palate, finishing dry.
