2010 Phillipe Tessier Cheverny Rouge (Previously $15)

SKU #1073278

The Tessier Cheverny Rouge is a luscious blend of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Côt (Malbec). The small addition of Côt really makes it addictive and divine. 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.

Really a fun wine to drink, spicy, juicy, food friendly, a very neat wine to drink. Gamay and Pinot lend some nice brightness and then the spicy fruit of Malbec comes in to round out the blend. Serve a bit chilled and prepare your palate for a party.

This unusual red from the little known Loire Valley appellation of Cheverny has proven to be surprisingly popular with our customers. Spicy, lightly floral, with very pretty tart red fruits, this food friendly, medium bodied red is at its best slightly chilled. Typically a blend of of gamay and pinot noir, a little bit of cot (malbec) has been added to the current vintage.

This is a refreshing blend of Pinot Noir, Gamay and Cot (Malbec). Aromatic nose of dark cherries and spice. Medium-bodied, with bright red fruits and undertones of licroice and minerals. Serve just slightly above cellar temperature with almost any type of food...chicken, pork loin, sharp cheeses or even lighter beef dishes. Or, go veg with baked eggplant and parmesan cheese.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

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.
