Vintage 2013 - Austerity is characteristic for Cheverny. This blend from sauvignon and a bit chardonnay lives to this expectation. The bottle years give a shy eaux de vie expression in smell. The taste has not gained richness, as is the fact with Cour Cheverny from the curious grape Romorantin. This Cheverny is plain and honest but has no complexity. I partnered it with a salmon leek pie and that didn't work, it gave the wine a nasty metallic taste. The wine needs not to get older, but should be drunk now. #loire #cheverny #sauvignon

Cork😩, so low score. But still very tastable. Chardonnay shows itself thru some butter. Lots of acids. The sauvignon is very tuned down.

surprisingly bright, grassy & dry considering it's 80% chardonnay.
