The Alexandre Monmousseau Estate
Chateau Gaudrelle is owned by fifth generation winemaker Alexandre Monmousseau. Alexandre's father, Armand Monmousseau, is the former head of his family's sparkling wine firm in Montrichard. Alexandre, intense and confident, received his schooling in Beaune and is one of the leaders of the Sec-Tendre (soft-dry) movement that includes producers like Huet and Champalou..

Monmousseau also produces Kysela's famous Vouvray, Clos le Vigneau.  

The AOC of Vouvray covers 9 villages:
     • Vouvray
     • Vernou sur Brenne
     • Noizay
     • Chançay
     • Reugny
     • Parçay
     • Meslay
     • Rochecorbon
     • Tours-Sainte Radegonde, which is the birth place of the vineyard (end of the 4th century).

"It is amazing how good a value Vouvray has remained despite the fact that it is such a popular wine from Loire. The appellation was founded in 1936 and covers nine villages in the region. You can find sparkling wines at this estate – sec (dry) or demi-sec (basically off-dry, although for most consumers these would be considered dry) – as well as their sweet wines, which vary considerably in their degrees of sweetness and are referred to as moelleux. All four of the following cuvees performed brilliantly in my tasting." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (June 2012)

The Alexandre Monmousseau Vineyard
Today the Monmousseau family farms 14 hectares (34.6 acres) of land: 6 hectares for Clos le Vigneau, 8 hectares for Château Gaudrelle. Clos Le Vigneau is a single vineyard from an area known as “les Gues d'Amant” or “Lover’s Gap”. Most of the vines were planted in 1929. The soil is a mixture of argilo-calcaire, silex and gravel. Alexandre Monmousseau believes in low yields for concentration and flavor. The grapes are hand harvested. Pressing is long and slow, fermentation is in stainless steel with two rackings and a light filtration before bottling.
