The Story

Vincent Careme, Vouvray


Vincent Careme, Vouvray

Vincent Carême is a young and dynamic Vouvray wine grower who set up his domaine from scratch in 1999. His is not a family business – his parents are cereal farmers – but his rise to prominence has been nothing short of meteoric. In the quiet and unfashionable Loire, this has, however, gone largely unnoticed.

The estate makes the full range of wines: sparkling, sec, demi-sec and moelleux and he uses organic methods across his vines, with the 14 hectares of vines used to produce his domaine wines being certified. As a means of raising capital and providing extra capacity, he has also set up a ‘négociant’ business, although the majority of the grapes he buys for this are, in fact, farmed by him.

Of the wines we are offering, the ‘Spring’ is négoce, the ‘Peu Morier’ domaine. We feel that his wines represent excellent value for money.

Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is an important white grape variety planted in the Anjou-Saumur and Touraine regions of the Loire Valley and the most widely planted varietal grape in South Africa.

In the Loire it produces high quality dry wines in Savenniéres, and luscious sweet, dessert wines in Coteaux du Layon, Bonnezeaux and Quarts de Chaume. In Vouvray and Montlouis it can be dry, medium dry, or sweet, and still or sparkling. Whether dry or sweet, the best Loire Chenin Blancs possess marvellously concentrated rich, honeyed fruit together with refreshingly vibrant acidity. It is Chenin Blanc's high acidity that enable the wines to age so well.

In South Africa Chenin Blanc is easier to grow and is prized for its versatility. It is used as a cheap blending option with Chardonnay, Colombard, and Muscat but also bottled unblended. The best producers keep their yields low and produce impressive mouthfilling wines.
