More details:

The AOC Cheverny wine region spreads over 24 communes. The annual production, around 20000 hl, is divided in equal parts: one half white wine and the 2nd half red and rosé wine. This label is now producing fruity and soft wines, sought for their qualities perfectly matched with our time.

Cheverny wines are traditionally concived from assemblies.
The white wines are composed of Sauvignon Blanc grapes, blended with Chardonnay or Pineau Blanc grapes.
The red and rosé wines are composed of Gamay grapes, blended with Pinot Noir grapes.

  • White wines: shiny and thin, they result from a combination between the arromatic Sauvignon with its notes of blackcurrant and liquorice and the elegance of the Chardonnay. The Pineau Blanc gives the balance the wine needs.
  • Red wine: rich in sap and tasty, they come from the blending of Gamay, which brings freshness and Pinot Black which gives finesse and subtlety. Cabernet Franc and Côt can be used complementary.
  • Rosé wine: A flexible wine with a fresh note marked by a spicy, sometimes lightly toasted hint.
