millesime 2013
2013 vintage

2013 vintage
Bottles produced: 5500

“Floral nose, lemon, fresh hazelnuts, notes of tropical fruit. Delicat mouth feel, fruity, supple, good length. Delicious. 17/20” – Le Point, June 18 2015.

Tasting notes: The 2013 is a classic dry Vouvray with lively acidity and the minerality of the vintage. Creamy, lemon line nose and schweppes bitter lemon on first tasting, evolving to tropical fruit which livens the mouth and shifts to floral notes over time. Drink at 11-14° C. Aging potential (5 years minimum)

Culinary matches: Perfect alone, as an aperitif or with Brittany oysters. Great with grilled fish, a warm goat cheese salad, roast pork or even a grilled lobster with a garlic and coriander pesto!

Measurements: Alcohol 11,5%, Total Acidity: 6,2 g/l, Residual sugar: approx. 8 g/l

Retail price Europe: 23 euros per bottle (tax included)

Each bottle is individually numbered.


millesime 2011
2011 vintage

2011 vintage
Bottles produced: 6850

Rated as “Exceptional” by the Revue de Vin de France in their “Millesime 2011” issue.

Tasting notes: The 2011 gives the sense of being quite dry despite a bit of residual sugar due to the lively acidity and the minerality of the vintage. Drink at 10-12° C. Aging potential (5 years minimum).

Culinary matches: Perfect alone, as an aperitif with antipasti, or a multitude of dishes suitable to a dry, rich Vouvray: baked tomatoes stuffed with ricotta, chicken with mustard and tarragon sauce…

Measurements: Alcohol 13%, Total Acidity: 6,1 g/l, Residual sugar: 13 g/l

Retail price Europe: 23 euros per bottle (tax included).

Each bottle is individually numbered.


millesime 2009
2009 vintage

2009 vintage
Bottles produced: 7000

Selected by the Revue du Vin de France for their “2009: A great vintage” issue.

Tasting notes: While the 2009 has the same “footprint” as the 2008 in terms of richness and complexity, and the fruit-filled base, there is a striking minerality which makes the wine taste dryer and releases delicate smoky, flinty traces on the nose and mouth. Drink at 10-12° C. High aging potential (5-10 years minimum).

Culinary matches: Given the overall complexity of the wine, and the underlying sweetness, drinking it alone or as an aperitif is a good way to go. The underlying fruit and general robustness make it a great match with spicy dishes and goat and sheep cheese. The mineral aspect extends the match to many fish and seafood dishes as well as roast poultry.

Measurements: Alcohol 12,9%, Total Acidity: 6,2 g/l, Residual sugar: 31,2 g/l

Retail price Europe: 23 euros per bottle (tax included).

Each bottle is individually numbered.

Comments on the 2009 from the owners of Vinoteca,
wine bars and restaurants in London

“Peter Hahn’s attention to detail and respect for his vineyard & the people that work with him results in a breathtakingly fine, handcrafted wine. Produced in tiny quantities using organic methods, it is fabulously complex with rich, honey-tinged fruit and a vein of pure, gunflinty minerality which gives the sensation of a drier finish. Very special indeed.”

Tasting Notes from wine critic Jancis Robinson

“Le Clos de la Meslerie 2009 Vouvray Note: 17/20 (Superior)
Drink 2012-2022
Great concentration and nerve. Earnest in the extreme. At the moment it tastes just off dry. Really racy and tangy.”
