Buy Domaine Vincent Careme Vouvray L'Ancestrale
Wine Spectator 88 points - Broad and soft, with creamed apple, ginger and warm brioche notes. Flattering, though a touch shy on zip through the finish. Drink now. 30 cases imported.-JM  (Dec 31 2014)

Vinous 87 points - Vivid yellow. Rather lazy bead. Musky aromas of lemon pith, pear skin and woodsmoke. The somewhat plump orchard fruit flavors are given a bitter edge by a suggestion of anise and tangy acidity. Finishes with notes of quince and quinine.  (Dec 2014)

Wine maker notes
This graceful yet abundant bubbly entices with aromas of ripe fruit and toast that leads to a delicate, yet creamy palate with a hint of spice and a long, lingering finish.

Situated in the heart of Vouvray, Domaine Vincent Careme is the mastermind of young and dynamic Vincent Careme, who grew up on the property. While Vincent was born into a Vouvray farming family, he always knew he would set out on his own path. At the age of 14, under the watchful eye of his grandfather, he was already making his first wine. Upon completion of his viticulture studies, Vincent branched out to gain practical experience working harvests in Sancerre, Champagne, Alsace, Anjour, Muscadet-he even made Chenin Blanc in Thailand. Additionally, Vincent went abroad to acquire New World experience in South Africa, where Chenin Blanc, his passion, has found a second home. Vincent is passionate about Chenin Blanc and makes several styles of the varietal, ranging from still to sparkling and dry to sweet wines. He firmly believes that the quality of the wine is determined in the vineyard and onsequently spends every possible moment tending to his vines with the greatest of care.
