In the top part of Cheverny, Cour Cheverny, Romorantin grapes are grown. It's the only 125 hectares in the whole of France where these grapes can be found. The wine gives zippy and refreshing energy with the flavor of apricots, pears, smoke, and stone. 100% Romorantin grown on limestone soils and macerated on the skins for 3 months in below ground Georgian amphora and 2 months in vat. A rare a special Tessier cuvée!
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.
