Vouvray wines are in safe hands in the Loirehe Chenin Blanc grape is synonymous with Vouvray, one of the best-known subregions in the Loire region of France, producing wines that can last decades because of the grape's high acidity. Chenin is sometimes known locally as Pineau de la Loire. Vintage conditions influence wine styles. Cooler years tend to produce drier styles including sparkling Vouvray. Warmer years mean sweeter, dessert-style wines. Wines are designated by the terms sec, demi-sec, moelleux and doux. Dry styles have more noticeable acidity than the sweeter wines.Michel Autran trained as a doctor but has been making wine since 2006 . His first vintage was in 2011 and he makes wines of precision and elegance. Autran has chosen poetic names for his two wines, made from the two different soils on his property.Jacky crafted his first vintage in 2010 . His 2010 La Joubardiere Cuvee Warren spends four years on lees and is a wondrous wine. Vouvray is in good hands based on tasting the wines of this new generation of winemakers.
