Near Sologne and Castles of the Loire Valley, the Cheverny AOC is imperative. Wines of Cheverny have an originality : they always arise from blends, that is to say they are composed with several grapes :
- Pinot noir and Gamay for red and rosé wines
- Sauvignon and Chardonnay for white wines
The Cheverny appellation produces fruity, soft and friendly wines for joyful and festive moments.
A typical vineyard
Between the Loire River and the Sologne, the area of production (click above to see the map) extends over a surface of 574 ha on 24 municipalities of Loir-et-Cher (41). About forty wine growers produce 27 000 hectoliters a year. The production divides up into parts more or less equal: half in the white, half in the red and the rosés.
Strongly marked by the erosion of the Loire (erosion and deposit of terraces), the geology of the production area of Cheverny is rather original compared with the other appellations of the Loire Valley. It is derived either from dominant sandy soils or soils developed on calcareous substratum.
Lively and fine, white wine of Cheverny derives from a blend between Sauvignon, which expresses on this terroir all its aromatic power (note of blackcurrant and licorice) and the Chardonnay which brings the elegance.
Red wines of Cheverny are fruity and pleasant. They derive from a blend between the Pinot noir which gives the delicacy and the subtlety and the Gamay which brings freshness and roundness. The Cabernet Franc and the Côt can integrate the blend as complementary grapes.
Soft wines whose the freshness is marked by a spicy note, rosé wines of Cheverny are nice and easy to drink.
