Cour-Cheverny Cuvée Renaissance, Le Petit Chambord 2014

White Wine from France - Loire
A medium-dry Loire bargain from older-vine fruit, only made in certain vintages and sadly something of a rarity these days. Its relative sweetness is achieved by stopping the fermentation, leaving 19g of natural sugar in the wine, and the result is as delicious as it is refreshing, making it a delectable aperitif and a fine match for pâté, blue or richer goat's cheese, or even a fruit tart.

Domaine Cazin

Despite being based in the town of Cheverny, François Cazin produces mostly Cour-Cheverny wines from the little-known but ancient, and probably local, romorantin grape variety. Domaine Cazin consists of 21 hectares of land and the vines grow on chalky clay soils. Harvesting is carried out entirely by hand.

Loire Valley

Loire courtier and supplier to much of the UK trade Charles Sydney said back in September 2014, 'A couple of growers have commented that you'd have to go out of your way not to make great wine this year…others have talked of a dream vintage.'

2014 certainly looks like that rare thing in the Loire: a good, maybe even great, cabernet franc vintage, with consistent phenolic ripeness akin to 2005 commonplace. They did not escape some rain but well-tended vineyards were well placed to take best advantage of the favourable conditions of late summer.

Muscadets and sauvignon blancs are often down in quantity as a result of poor flowering and some summer mildew, but good in quality. For Vouvray it is more of a dry than a moelleux vintage, but higher yields than the last couple of years are welcome.
