Tasting Notes

The Cheverny region, at approximately 350 hectares covers 24 communes located near the center of the Loire Valley and is known for producing lighter style and fresh reds that while capable of aging are often best enjoyed while still young. The vineyards of Cheverny are comprised mostly of sand and clay soils interspersed with gravel terraces seen within the larger Loire Valley and in places, threads of limestone. The climate is continental but is influenced by large swaths of forest growth which surrounds the region on three sides and the Loire River to the north. The region is dotted with

Domaine du Salvard is 42 hectares currently managed by brothers Emmanuel and Thierry Delaille, the family’s fifth generation of winemakers to occupy the domaine. Grapes for this Salvard Blanc come from vines that are between 10-65 years-old.

In the vineyard, Emmanuel and Thierry introduced sustainable growing techniques while in the cellar, they were the first in the family to utilize temperature-controlled, stainless steel fermentation tanks.  The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

TASTING NOTES

This white shows fairly intense aromas of gooseberry and tangerine. On the palate, it begins with a high acid attack and a melange of grapefruit, gooseberry, lemongrass, green pear, melon, herbs and lime. While zingy at first, it finishes more rounded in texture. A New World drinker could enjoy this French classic for its generous fruit and it's also a wonderful food partner.

FOOD PAIRING
