Domaine Michel Autran

WHO WE ARE

Michel Autran began his Domaine in 2011 with a mere .5 hectares, and has now grown to 3.8 hectares.  Located in the Touraine subregion of the Loire Valley, Autran practices biodynamic agriculture and espouses natural winemaking.

 

Autran is one of the new generation of vignerons, at once an artist and poet, who rejects the constraints of tradition and practices his winemaking art without preconceptions. He utilizes only miniscule amounts of sulphur, and spaces out its application throughout the winemaking process.  To compensate for the near absence of sulfur, Autran employs both dynamic crossflow and lenticular filtration.

 

Autran’s Vouvray is invariably dry, soaringly expressive and energetic, with sparkling acidity and compelling energy.
