2008 Tessier Cheverny Rouge

SKU #1049124

The Tessier Cheverny Rouge is a luscious blend of Gamay, Pnot Noir and Côt (Malbec). This medium-bodied beauty is supple and elegant, a portrait of restraint and purity and just about one of the happiest wines we have in the store. Enjoy its cherry-scented nose, spicy licorice-tinged palate and ample sweet fruit just above cellar temperature and over the next 5-8 years.

What an enjoyable wine! Bright red fruit, light in the mouth, energetic and vibrant. It's the perfect red for sipping with friends, or perhaps pairing with a roasted chicken, even braised meat if you're in the mood for something lighter and brighter to contrast the dish. Tessier's wines are among my favorite Loire direct imports in the store, and this delightful red really brings the goods this vintage.

The Tessier Rouge is always a great wine, nevertheless this year they have decided to tamper with the formula a bit. The result is another success. The addition of Malbec to the Pinot Noir/Gamay blend has resulted in a fuller and softer wine that I think many newcomers may latch onto a little easier. The earthiness and funk have been smoothed out by the softness of the Malbec fruit, but the cherries and perfume still linger. One of the true deals in our store.

I just recently tasted this wine in a lineup of 12 other power-packed reds, and this bright red-fruited blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Cot(malbec) stood out against the crowd of big, jammy, over-extracted contenders. This bottle of red is everything that I look for in a wine. Spicey pepper aromatics with a tinge of kirsch liquer, bright red cherry fruit, and raspberry dominate the nose. While the light to medium body palate comes packed with even more cherry and raspberry fruit and the perfect balance of acidity to round out this incredible red.

This might be the most fun bottle of red wine in stock at K&L right now. This medium- to light-bodied red is 10 out of 10 for drinkability, and is so well balanced that I need to be careful not to drink too much of it at home. It has very nice kirsch-like fruit on the nose, and a supple feel in the mouth. This is a great match for all manner of simple foods at home - especially roast chicken!
Top Value!

An easy-drinking but memorable zippy, light red wine with fresh fruit flavors and interesting floral and spice aromas.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity.

Sub-Region:

Loire

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
