Comes from the Cherverny AOC (in Touraine, and just down the river from Sancerre). It’s a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (85%) and Chardonnay (15%), which was aged on its lees. In the mouth, it shows off lots of Sancerre-esque crispness and zippy mineral flavors, but with a bit of a softer feel to it. The flavors continue to develop, with tangy apples and more grass following the minerals.  Long and dry finish.  Get the mussels ready. A great value for those looking for an entry point into understanding Sancerre without breaking the bank.
