Situated in the heart of Vouvray, Domaine Vincent Carême is the mastermind of young and dynamic Vincent Carême. The estate, overseen by Vincent and his wife Tania, currently spans 42 acres with different blocks spread over three villages: Vouvray, Vernou-sur-Brenne and Noizay. Most of the blocks are on steep slopes overlooking the Loire valley with two of them, Le Clos (meaning enclosed vineyard) and Le Peu Morier, being vinified separately to express their unique terroirs. All of Domaine Vincent Carême’s wines are certified organic from 2010 onwards by Ecocert in France.
Bright lemon and crisp apple aromas captivate the senses, revealing a balanced acidity and brisk elegance. Clean and effervescent, this mouthwatering sparkling Vouvray leaves the palate refreshed.
Cuvée ‘T’ is crafted in the méthode traditionnelle, which is more commonly known by its former name of méthode champenoise, meaning that the process includes a second fermentation in bottle. Grapes were harvested, (half handpicked, the rest by machine) and then pressed with the juice undergoing cold settling in tank for 24 hours. The first fermentation lasted two months (in tank) with natural yeast only. The wine was then bottled (when there was around 18g/liter of natural residual sugar) without adding any sugar for the 2nd fermentation. There is a minimum of 12 months aging on the lees and 6g/liter dosage at disgorging.
