Product Description

Alexandre Monmousseau Gaudrelle Vouvray Reserve Personelle 2010 is made from 100 percent Chenin Blanc

Fine Chenin Blanc typicity, with aromas of ripe apples and honeyed notes. Rich, smooth, rounded palate with great structure and weight. Has the acidity to support ageing for 10 years.

Review:

"A luscious sweet wine, very honeyed and liquorous. As a complete contrast, the wine has that intense acidity that is the hallmark of Loire sweet wines. The combination is a fragrant nectar that will benefit from aging. — R.V."

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.

Alexandre Monmousseau Gaudrelle Vouvray Reserve Personelle 2015 (half-bottle)

Alexandre Monmousseau Gaudrelle Vouvray Reserve Personelle is made from 100 percent Chenin Blanc

Fine Chenin Blanc typicity, with aromas of ripe apples and honeyed notes. Rich, smooth, rounded palate with great structure and weight. Has the acidity to support ageing for 10 years.



Gaudrelle Monmousseau Clos le Vigneau Vouvray 2017

Clos le Vigneau Vouvray is made from 100% Chenin Blanc

The wine is off dry in style with honey, earth and apricot notes. Wines from the town of Vouvray have been known to age well for 40 years. This particular bottling should hold for at least 5-7 years. This Loire Valley white wine from France is perfect on a warm spring day.

Review:

"The 2017 Vouvray Clos Le Vigneau comes all from a single lieu-dit (Clos Le Vigneau) and is 100% Chenin Blanc brought up all in tank. This medium-bodied, rounded, off-dry white offers up beautiful notes of peach, honeyed apple, and citrus-like aromas and flavors. I love its purity, it has good acidity, and it’s a brilliant white that’s going to shine for at least 4-5 years, and I suspect much longer. There’s no need to delay gratification though."

Chateau Gaudrelle Vouvray Sparkling Methode Traditionnelle NV

Produced from 100% Chenin Blanc planted on clay and flint stones based soils.
Vinification: aged in stainless steel tanks with temperature controlled fermentation. Aged on the lees for 4 months. 
Kieselguhr filtration.
This sparking wine is fresh and fruity. Rich and easy to drink, which makes it a wonderful aperitif. For the aficionados this is an excellent food friendly wine. Its quality makes it a great alternative to Champagne.

"The two sparkling wines should not be missed. They’re both terrific examples of how good sparkling Vouvray can be. Both are 100% Chenin Blanc cuvees, with the non-vintage Chateau Gaudrelle Vouvray Brut showing lots of effervescence and plenty of flowery brioche, buttered citrus, melon and dried apricot notes. It is crisp, fresh, and ideal for drinking over the next several years."

"Just off-dry, this almond- and apple-flavored wine achieves a fine balance of crispness and richness. There is just a touch of honey, intertwined with delicious citrusy acidity."

Review:

"Based on 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec, the 2015 Chateau Brule Secaille Grande Reserve Cotes de Bourg spent a year in 40% American oak, with one-third being new. Black fruits, spicy oak, underbrush, and cedar notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced 2015 that has solid mid-palate depth and ample fruit. It’s a fleshy, charming effort that has loads of character."
