On the southern bank of the central Loire, revered natural winemaker Philippe Tessier and father Roger Tessier organically farm the estate's 23 hectares of vines. Their Cheverny Blanc, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Orbois, is fermented spontaneously in stainless steel with indigenous yeast and undergoes malolactic fermentation before spending 6 months in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels. The result is a subtle, yet complex, white that's less piercing and puckery than a typical Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of fresh melon and peach blossom are followed by a harmonious balance of crisp acidity, flinty minerality and fresh stonefruit flavors on the palate. A wine of elegance and finesse, enjoy with a salade Niçoise or sautéed trout with lemon and garlic.
