Cheverny Red Blend 2018

2nd bottle, 10 months later. A lot of fruit at the opening: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants. It is a virtuous blend combining generous Gamay with nuanced Pinot Noir. Compared to the first bottle, the wine becomes more supple, the acidity now being less pronounced. Almost oily, chalky mineral structure, typical of Loire wines due to grounds. It will develop favorably for a few more years.

2ème bouteille, 10 mois après. Toujours beaucoup de fruit à l’ouverture: fraise, mûres, myrtilles, cassis. C’est un assemblage vertueux associant le généreux gamay au nuancé pinot noir. Comparé à la première bouteille, le vin gagne en souplesse, l’acidité étant maintenant moins prégnante. Trame minérale crayeuse presque grasse, typique des vins de Loire. Il évoluera favorablement pendant quelques années encore.

Gamay-Pinot Noir blend, or a varietal wine?

@Cristóbal Arellano Borges yes, a blend of mostly Gamay, a little it of Pinot, and a dollop of Cot (Malbec).

One of the better Cour-Cheverny wines I've tasted: a statement that says everything but also nothing. Less unpleasantly oxidative than Daridan, more interesting than de Montcy and Cazin and at much frendlier price than Henri Marionnet. For the money I think this is the best that's out there-- Golden apple skin, celery, tarragon. — 6 years ago

There was a library release of Renaissances a few years ago, including '95s and '96es. If you can get your hands on them, they are sensational wines. In their youth they can be a little cloying though, I agree.

I'll definitely have to seek those out. Sounds spectacular.

Within the last year or so, I saw them at Nice Matin and Bathazar for under $100. Not exactly the sort of thing that flies off a shelf.
