The Gaudron family – fourth generation Gilles Gaudron is currently at the helm – have been making wine in Vernou since about 1890, farming a 27-hectare vineyard, two-thirds of it with an average age of 30 years.
The cellars date back to the 13th century, with 1km of galleries burrowed deep into the rock. And it’s here where a few of the Gaudron wines spend several months in oak to acquire more complexity and character.
Very pale lemon yellow colour. Hints of honey and fresh hay typical of Chenin. Chalky minerality. Backbone of high acidity keeping the wine taut, energetic and fresh, but rounded out with the merest hint of sweetness.
