Overview

A project between Lionel Gauthier and Jon-David Headrick, La Craie is made from fruit grown on tuffeau clay soils near the village of Vouvray. Bottled with between 8 and 12 g/L of residual sugar it is on the lighter side of demi-sec and displays all the winsome charms and flexibility at the table that made Vouvray famous.
