  • We were made very welcome. Eric took the time to visit to the cellar and to taste the sparkling and still wines. There is something for every taste: dry, soft and sweet, all wines were very thin. Thanks for a very nice time. We will return with pleasure.

  • Visit and tasting very interesting. We feel the passion in the speech and in the product. This isn't my first visit of the cellar, but it stands! And reconciles me with white wine, at least those of the gaudrelle Castle. The personal wine is excellent, and heart for the watchtower of amand!

  • Leo hosted us with great explanation about the winery process and very kind. We had a great time understanding the selections on wine tasting.  more »
  • The tour was given by the owner who was friendly and informative, and I learned much about the wine making process as a result. I also felt the tasting experience was more rewarding than that of a couple of other places we visited where the tasting hosts were professional and knowledgeable, but lacked the detail of exactly how the wine had been produced.
  • Had a glass of the Sec in Le Bar St Vincent down the road in Rochecorbon. We were so impressed we asked what it was and decided to pay Château Gaudrelle a visit. We were immediately offered a free tasting session. As a result we bought some Sec, Tendre Sec and sparkling wine. This is lovely, superior quality wine and we cannot recommend it enough. We'll definitely be back for more next year. Santé!
  • So amazing. Such friendly people and so accommodating. Amazing wines and so interesting. Such a great experience and so inexpensive I was shocked.
  • Loved these white wines. Our favorite!
  • Guide des Vins © Patrick Dussert-Gerber: "Founded in 1931 by the grandfather of my friend Alexandre Monmousseau."Today, he says, we conduct our vineyard in respect of the biological rhythm of the vines and the nature in order to create the conditions for optimum ripening of the crop. The soils are calcareous clay or siliceous clay. The bedrock is from the era of the Turonian (-60-to-90 million years). We attach great importance to our different soils and soil types. In fact, each parcel and, in some cases, each acidulated is the subject of a separate vinification. Soil is competition and the flora that is developed is native. We do more treatment anti-botrytis since 1987. Concerning the protection of the vineyard, we manage to control adequately the phytosanitary State with 6-7 treatments per year." Superb Vouvray moelleux reserves special 2010, of a well-balanced, sweet and lively at the same time, with fat, scents persistent notes of candied fruits, aromas of citrus (mandarine), from custody. Vouvray white Turonian 2012, marked by its terroir, with notes of Apple and flowers, very fruity, is fresh and persistent, a very pretty final. While nuances, the Vouvray dry white soft 2012, fine and rich at once, is sweet, with notes of almond and fishing, on skewers of foie gras with grapes. We also tasted the Vouvray the Sec de Château Gaudrelle 2011, very distinctive, powerful and Gewurztraminer, very seductive by its structure and persistence of aromas. Pretty gross Vouvray vintage 2010, abundant, harmonious and fine, foam that combines structure and nervousness, is fruity on the nose as in the mouth, in shades of pink and quince, very charming as this Extra brut White Castle Gaudrelle 2011, which combines structure and liveliness, lovely aromatic complexity where there are shades of lemon and lilac, distinguished, a beautiful persistence. No hesitation."
