Château Moncontour

Loire, loire France

The iconic structure of Château Moncontour was built by Charles VII in the 15th century and lies in the heart of Vouvray, high on a ridge above the Loire. The winery, dug into the hillside beneath, was established in the 4th century and is one of the oldest in the Loire Valley. Christian Feray, a surgeon, bought the Château in 1994, having coveted it since he was a child, and has moved Moncontour to the forefront of the Vouvray renaissance. Winemaker Jérôme Loisy has been making wine here for the last 25 years. He makes thoroughly modern wines – fresh, racy and full of ripe orchard fruit – across his dry and sparkling range.

Château Moncontour has 130 hectares of vineyard. Its dry Vouvray comes from a unique parcel in the village of Rochecorbon, near to Vouvray. The Chenin Blanc grapes are all hand-harvested. Regular lees stirring and malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels to develop the richness and roundness of this wine. The Vouvray Brut NV is made in the traditional method, where fermentation takes place in bottle. The grapes come from the various parcels located in the villages of the Vouvray AOC. It offers a fantastic expression of sparkling Chenin Blanc – fruit-expressive and refreshing.
