Charles Bove Vouvray
The Charles Bove company was founded in the 19th century in Montrichard, in the Loire Valley. Its base of operations was, and is, an enormous rock quarry, abandoned after it had been quarried for building the Loire Chateaux. This old quarry is now composed of 15 kilometers of underground cellars, with hardly varying temperatures of 12°C, summer and winter. The humidity inside is ideal for making and storing wines.

Wines from the Vouvray region have been on French kings’ tables since the 14th century. The wine is made up of 100% Chenin Blanc; Vouvray wine is steely and vivacious when young and ages magnificently for decades because of its dynamic balance between acidity and sweetness.
The wines are vinified, blended and bottled at Bove. The intrinsic qualities of the different wines are optimized by blending them together in one single vat. Reserve stocks allow them to offset variable weather conditions. At the end of the bottling operation, during which the wine is topped up with liqueur de tirage, the bottles, capped with metal temporary caps, are stored in the chalk cellars.
There is appealing apricot and peach, with a tart beginning and a touch of sweetness on the finish.
