Michel Autran gave up a career in medicine to train with François Pinon, and started making his own wines just a few years ago. He makes only a few wines, uses virtually no interventions, tiny quantities of sulfur, and raises his wines in neutral casks only. Each wine is focused on one of Vouvray's two great soil types: Les Enfers Tranquilles comes from a classic mix of limestone and clay, while the Ciel Rouge is silex all the way.A more opulent side of Chenin here, with lots of stone fruit, ripe tropical fruit and white flowers (and a hint of bitter green almond on the finish), this is lush and rewarding. Though it was a warm vintage, Michel's typical acid-forward style shines through. A wine to drink now but with aging potential, for sure.
