"Cour Cheverny is a tiny appellation in the Touraine has fewer than 50 ha in production. Cour Cheverny must be 100% Romorantin a vine thought to have been brought here by Francis 1st in the 16th century. Philippe Tessier, one of the stars of the region, crafts this singular white from 60-85 year old vines and matures it in 3-5 year old burgundy barrels. It is rich and textured, almost powerful, with hints of orange peel, grapefruit and soil with a finish that is long and spicy. Astound your friends who think they know everything there is to know about wine...Dig on this!!!"
