2009 Phillipe Tessier Cheverny Rouge

SKU #1058157

According to Robert Parker: "The Tessier red 2009 Cheverny – from Gamay with smaller contingents of Pinot and Cot (Malbec) – offers a good value and good introduction to its genre. Black raspberry and rhubarb scents anticipate the tart yet effusively fruity impression on a soft yet for the vintage quite refreshing palate. This lingers with lovely accents of orange rind and cooked ginger accompanying its persistent fruit." (08/10) The Tessier Cheverny Rouge is a luscious blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Côt (Malbec). The small addition of Côt and the warm vintage of 2009 really make this one of my favorite Cheverny reds to date. 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.

Well, now here is a BBQ wine I didn't see coming, full of fruit, spice and the right amount of acid. It can stand up to any BBQ sauce or spice rub.

The perfect summer red! Medium-body, hints of red fruit on the nose, and a clean finish. When the temperature rises, and you are aching for a great red to pair with BBQ or that light summer dinner, pick up a bottle or two!

A gracious blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Malbec. Boutiful cherries on the nose with notes rhubarb and orange rind. On the palate, dark cherries, raspberries and ginger. I've served this with hoison salmon and roasted pork with great success.

Bright and juicy with a nice dry finish, the Tessier Cheverny Rought is a pleasure to drink. It is medium bodied offering hints of cherry and spice. The Tessier Cheverny Rouge is great at room temperature but is a little better with a slight chill on it. Enjoy it alone or with pork,chicken or light cheese.

An absolute charmer, Tessier's 2009 Cheverny Rouge is one of the wines I will drink over and over again this year. Light bodied and refreshing, it shows hi-tone cherry fruit with a touch of anise. Great acidity and a mineral snap at the finish make it the perfect match for lighter summer cuisine. I am planning to pair my next bottle with grilled salmon and Potatoes Provençal.

The 2009 Tessier Cheverny Rouge* ($14.99) is a blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Côt (Malbec), and in ’09 it presents itself with wonderful red berry to anise to clove-driven fruit tones on the nose that carry over to a wonderfully expansive, subtly complex, well integrated set of flavors. There’s enough structure and depth to make this a great near term drinker with lighter red meat meals. It will age, easily, for another five to 10 years. However, Anderson has informed me that this will be one of our house reds for the month. 12.5% ABV (Jim Barr)
Drink from 2010 to 2020

A delightful blend of gamay, pinot noir and malbec that is better than the sum of its parts. This is warm weather red. A slight chill and the vibrant cherry fruit and spicy nuances sing forth. Ham and cheese sandwiches, grilled vegetables and some potato salad with this and you have the greatest picnic lunch.

I cant stop smelling this wine! Reminiscent of gingersnap cookies dipped in cherry juice. Delicious, pretty and complex. 91

This is a wine to love and drink much of! This is a sunny wine, no pretense here, with a mouthful of fruit balanced out by acidity to make it one of the most food-friendly and pleasurable wines I've had recently. It's got the juicy fun of gamay, the heft and silkiness of malbec and the finesse and mouthwatering acidity of pinot. This will go with whatever you're eating, especially those hard-to-pair delicate foods. What a find!

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.
