The Oddbins Take

There’s more to Loire valley Sauvignon than Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Even occasionally more than just Sauvignon Blanc. This lesser known gem delivers all the bone dry, nettles and flint crispness you’d expect from it’s better known near neighbours, but with 15% Chardonnay added to this blend there’s just a hint of something richer, rounder and riper that will take you pleasantly by surprise. And without a big name premium its something of a bargain to boot!

Jane MacQuitty in The Times, 16/12/15: "This delicious sparky, greengage and lemon zest-spiked Loire sauvignon, pumped up with chardonnay, is a party must-have."
This single estate Cheverny has been made by 5 generations of the same family. Emmanuel Delaille, the current winemaker, has been making wine for 19 years. Yields are deliberately restricted, ensuring quality and ripeness and the wine is crisp, fresh and attractively complex – perfect served chilled on its own as an aperitif
