Pale yellow with green hints. A fresh nose, with white flowers, brioche and apple aromas. Harmonious palate with a nice acidity and finesse.
The iconic structure of Château Moncontour was built by Charles VII in the15th century and lies in the heart of Vouvray, high on a ridge above the Loire. The winery, dug into the hillside beneath, was established in the 4th century and is one of the oldest in the Loire Valley.
Christian Feray, a surgeon, bought the Château in 1994, having coveted it since he was a child, and has moved Moncontour to the forefront of the Vouvray renaissance. Winemaker Jérôme Loisy has been making wine here for the last 25 years. He makes thoroughly modern wines – fresh, racy and full of ripe orchard fruit.
