Foreau, Vouvray

"Considering that few white wine growers anywhere can boast the track record of Philippe Foreau, his Vouvrays are priced to continue offering wonderful value. This becomes especially (at times depressingly) evident when one compares the much higher prices asked for Chenin from certain appellations further West that have traditionally been treated as superior according to the still rather hide-bound French pecking order, even when they deliver questionable or even dismal results. Buy these wines now, before the market for Loire wine at last becomes a meritocracy!..."

Foreau, Vouvray

Philippe Foreau is the third generation of the Foreau family to produce Vouvray from this iconic domaine which his grandfather purchased in 1923- Today it is made up of around a dozen hectares of Chenin Blanc with an average approaching 50 years.  

Domaine du Clos Naudin is in the northeast of Vouvray. Its elevated, southward facing vineyards are farmed to organic methods with no herbicides and only organic fertilisers in use. The harvest is done manually and Foreau does not chapitalizes his wines, relying only on natural ripeness for his demi-sec and moelleux wines.
