Vincent Careme is one of the only natural winemakers in the Vouvray appellation. He is a talented young winemaker who has learned from the best of the Loire valley natural winemakers, and put into question his more conventional approach of a few years ago. Vincent is the son of Vouvray grape growers, but before settling in Vouvray, he went to South Africa where he stayed for four vintages. Vincent also teaches at the wine school in Amboise, just east of Tours in the Loire. Vincent founded his vineyard in 1999, mostly from rented vines. He currently farms 15 hectares in AOC Vouvray. The vines are organic since 2002, but he is in official conversion to certified organic sine 2007. His 2010 vintage will have certification. Though its soil is only about 18 inches thick, the vineyards of Vouvray are supported by a thick layer of limestone tufa. Vincents vines are planted on the edge of the plate, the wine made and preserved in cellars dug in an abrupt cliff. Careme does a longer aging than the Vouvray norm, in order to produce wines that are more complex, richer, beautifully balanced.
