Minimalist Chenin from the Loire.

The Alexandre Giquel “Gallus” Vouvray is liquid proof that less is more. Alexandre is one of the few vignerons within the Loire Valley to farm his vines entirely without tractors - he uses horses instead. The vines are only sprayed with a backpack, and this expression of Chenin Blanc has vines that are about 90 years old. A heady combination of smoked apples and citrus zest.
  • Alexandre Giquel is a Loire Valley native and self-made vigneron.
  • He tends to 3-hectares of vines that grow on a mixture of clay and silex - a rich, flint-based soil.
  • All vines are Certified Organic.

Pairs with:

  • All black ensemble.
  • This recipe for a deconstructed taco bowl.
  • Turning your phone off.
