Michel Autran is a talented winemaker in Vouvray, who left his job in 2006 to pursue his passion for winemaking. After studying under the best producers in Vouvray and Montlouis, he carefully selected 3.5ha of old vines on prime sites in Noizay. Michel works intuitively in the vineyard and follows the lunar calendar, but does not want to be tagged as a biodynamic grower. He intends on producing exclusively dry wines and ages them for a minimum of two years in troglodyte underground caves dug out of tuffeau. Michel keeps his domaine to a modest size to gain a profound and intimate understanding of the terroir, which allows for detailed fine-tuning over the years.

 An avid Jazz fan, Michel likens Les Enfers Tranquilles to a soprano saxophone for its tension, crystalline quality, incredible length, and perfect balance. Loaded with baked peach, confit quince and balanced by crushed stone minerality, it delivers a mouth-watering finish that just won't quit. This is Vouvray for white Burgundy-lovers and therefore represents astonishing value.
