Cheverny Blanc


80% Sauvignon Blanc/20% Chardonnay. Though his rock-stardom stems from his Cour-Cheverny wines from the more obscure Romorantin grape, it was his Cheverny Blanc--by law a Sauvignon/Chardonnay blend-- which led importer Joe Dressner to François's wines in the first place at a Loire wine fair 25 years ago! He grows Sauvignon Rose, a sub-variety of Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay, some vines of which are up to 40 years old, on clay-limestone soils. The organically farmed grapes are hand-harvested, co-fermented with natural yeasts in tank, aged in tank and neutral oak for a year, and bottled by gravity and with no filtration. Le Petit Chambord (on every Cazin label) is the historical name of the family property.
