DOMAINE VINCENT CARÊME

Natural Emblem

 

Vincent Carême is a young and dynamic Vouvray wine grower who set up his domaine from scratch in 1999. His rise to prominence has been nothing short of meteoric.

The estate makes the full range of Chenin Blanc styles: sparkling, sec, demi-sec and moelleux and he uses organic and biodynamic methods across his vines, with the 14 hectares of vines being certified.

The Le Clos, the prized site of the domaine, is a walled vineyard that sits high on the slopes overlooking the Loire River. It is a dry white wine made entirely from grapes from the flint and touffeau soils, a true treasure from the Vouvray appellation.

“Rich and soaring out the glass like a Nellie Melba solo. Purity and clarity and confidence. Thrilling. Super fine on the finish. Tingling with lemon. So young, and yet already stunning.” – Jancis Robinson
