In truth, this wine is made not by both Catherine and Pierre, but by Catherine alone. The wines of Vouvray are especially dear to Catherine, as this quaint village—known for growing Chenin Blanc—is where she grew up, born into a five generation winemaking family. Though it is just an hour’s drive from Restigné (next door to Bourgueil), where she now lives, she maintains a connection to her hometown through this cuvée.
    The innate characteristics of the terroir and Catherine’s delicate, evenhanded touch bring out the best that Vouvray has to offer. There is something emotive about this wine, with its soft texture, stroke of mineral, and notes of wildflowers. It is a wine of true pastoral pleasure.–Clark Z. Terry
