Bearing all the hallmarks of classic Vouvray, this shows
ripe green apple and citrus fruit with a mineral core,
vibrant and dry on the palate with a lovely long, salty
finish.
Producer Note
Domaine de la Rouletière is located in the heart of some of the most sought-after slopes
in Vouvray. Founded in 1914, it is owned by the Gilet family, wine-growers for five
generations. Owner and winemaker Jean-Marc Gilet cultivates the 27 hectare vineyard
organically, respecting the environment and the terroir. At the heart of the vineyard, the
domain possesses a magnificent two storey cellar that has been carved out by the
Gilet family over many generations: 800 square metres set in freestone. The wines are
elegantly styled, beautifully balanced and bear all the hallmarks of superb Vouvray.
Vintage
The winter of 2019/2020 was the warmest since the turn of this century, bringing with it
an abundance of rain. This sparked the vine’s growth cycle and flowering took place
two weeks earlier than average. The summer was warm and dry, with several heatwaves, which allowed the vines to flourish, the grapes to mature and concentrated the
flavours in the berries. The natural water reserves prevented any hydric stress. Harvest
took place in the first week of September, resulting in elegant wines with excellent fruit
concentration.
Vineyard
The Vouvray AOC is situated on the right bank of the Loire Valley. The fruit for this wine
comes from 70-year old vines, grown in a three-hectare single vineyard ‘le Pont de
Frasnes’. The vineyard is certified organic by Ecocert; the grapes are grown without the
use of synthetic or chemical preparations. The vineyard is planted with a south-facing
orientation to maximise sunlight exposure during the growing season. It covers Turonian
limestone hillsides, interspersed with confluent valleys and covered with ‘perruche’, a
flinty clay soil. The vines yield 40 hectolitres per hectare and the grapes are handharvested once they have reached optimal maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were selectively picked by hand and each parcel within the single vineyard
was vinified separately to retain the character of the terroir. Fermentation took place at
cool temperatures using natural yeasts. Ageing took place in French oak barrels for 15
months imparting subtle complexity.
Tasting Note
Bearing all the hallmarks of classic Vouvray, this shows smoky apple and stone fruit with
a taut mineral core, complex, long and savoury.
