Pierre Chainier Vouvray Première is a pale straw coloured wine with stone fruit aromas of apricot and peach, along with a touch of honey and hints of baked apple. Its fruit flavours are complemented by a touch of minerality, leading to a delicate and lingering finish. Perfectly paired with roast chicken or spicy oriental dishes.

About the Producer

Formed in 1973, Pierre Chainier is both a négociant and the owner of some 250 hectares of vines in the heart of Touraine, from which it sources classic Loire varieties. Its eight Touraine estates include Domaine de la Bruyère in the newly established appellation of Touraine-Chenonceaux. Conversely, Clos de Nouys, its 25 acre Vouvray estate, is one of the oldest in the appellation. Here, vines average 35 years of age in vineyards that were already listed amongst the best sites on geological maps dating from 1907.

Vineyard and Winery

For both its négociant arm and its own vineyards, Pierre Chainier seamlessly blends the principles of reasoned agriculture with the most modern winemaking techniques. It encourages sustainable development and official certification for its growers, it uses sugar cane-derived biodegradable “corks”, and it has a comprehensive waste recycling programme.
