Serious bubbles for the price: the local Chenin Blanc grape brings riper citrus and tree fruit to the bready flavours of Methode Traditionelle and the the racy, mineral acidity of the famous local soils...this Loire bubbles is not so much like Champagne as arguably MORE than Champagne - more flavour, more ripeness, more mineral expression. Just far, far cheaper! Insane value from our exclusive import - try it.

Overview

Grape

Chenin Blanc

Its Origins

After gaining experience in Alsace and Burgundy, Bernard Fouquet established his own winery in 1982 in the Loire, focussed on the Chenin Blanc grape. He soon created a trial and error knowledge of his terroir and by the mid-late 1990s, when Vouvray had a series of stellar vintages, Fouquet wines were among the foremost in the world market for the price. With an emphasis on purity and use of stainless steel, Fouquet aims to capture his respective terroir characteristic in each style: mainly calcareous clay in his dry and dessert wines, mainly flint/silica in his demi-sec and sparkling wines. Today Fouquet’s labels remain inexpensive but are considered to be among Vouvray’s best at any price.

What The Critics Say

89/100 Wine Advocate, David Schildknecht

"The latest rendition of Aubuisieres Non-Vintage Vouvray Brut Methode Traditionelle smells of ripe melons and narcissus, with a whiff of snuffed candle wick. Pineapple and lime join the melons on a juicy, delicate palate, with hints of salt as well as pungent citrus zest and smoke adding to the invigoration conveyed by a fine stream of bubbles. I was surprised to find the finish entirely satisfying and fruit-filled despite there being a mere 2 grams of residual sugar. The latest installment of what is surely the consistently best value in its appellation."
