The 2020 white sweet Vouvray Goutte d'Or is a wine produced only 5 times (in 1947, 1990, 2011, 2015 and 2020), from the richest selection in the vineyard. It's an extraordinary sweet wine, dazzling in its concentration, merrily exceeding 200 g/l residual sugar, but endowed with such tension, complexity and resonance that it seems self-evident. It should be aged, almost forever...


Hand harvested. Residual sugar: 230 gr/l.


Serve between 10 and 12°C.

Food and wine pairing:

Foie gras terrine or pan-fried, blue-veined cheeses: Fourme d'Ambert and Roquefort Papillon affiné, roasted Victoria pineapple with vanilla.

Cellar aging:

From now until 2050 and beyond for enthusiasts.

At the pinnacle of Vouvray, with 3 stars in the RVF Guide, Vincent Foreau produces dazzlingly pure white wines at the Clos Naudin, a wonderfully balanced and precise canvas. Pure, long on the palate and blessed with near-infinite aging potential, the estate's wines stand out every year as masterpieces.

To quote the RVF: "What great wines have in common with rich spirits is that they make you smarter. Thus, when tasting the Clos Naudin vouvrays, everything becomes clear and legible in the chenin; what is complex is also greedy, what is ripe remains consequently tense, what is good early on is confirmed and amplified over the decades."
