WINE DETAILS

A medium-light bodied blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Gamay. The grapes are 30% destemmed with 70% left in their whole cluster before undergoing fermentation in part through carbonic maceration. This is a method typically used to emphasize freshness while suppressing tannins. Nonetheless, this wine has structure and balance. With dry, dusty tannins that are amplified by a pronounced granite minerality, pomegranate and ripe cherry, as well as peppery and herbaceous notes.

Philippe Tessier

Domaine Tessier was founded in 1961 by Roger Tessier, with his son Philippe taking the reins 20 years later in 1981. They are located in the heart of the Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny AOC’s and currently have 23 ha of vines.

The vineyard exists in a microclimate that keeps the vineyards cool. Situated between the Loire River and the forest of Cheverny, Chambord, and Sologne, Tessier's vines have been Ecocert organic certified since 1998.

Philippe believes that a wine should be the expression of the place from which it comes and should reflect the climatic conditions of the year, as well as the vigneron that produces it, while also respecting the life of the soil and the environment. He believes that it should give pleasure but must also be sound and healthy, alive and digestible, and above all, it should be a natural wine.
