Domaine Du Salvard Cheverny Blanc
Brand Domaine Du Salvard
Simple and elegant, this Cheverny is a true classic. Boasting exquisite balance between the roundness of Chardonnay and the zestiness of Sauvignon Blanc, the flavours here are clean and refreshing with a creamy mid-palate and an aromatic finish.
Grape: 85% Sauvignon Blanc 15% Chardonnay
Domaine du Salvard has been a working domaine since 1898, through five hardworking generations of the Delaille family. Today, all forty-two hectares of vineyards are farmed by the capable brother team of Emmanuel and Thierry Delaille, with help from their father Gilbert. To our delight, they have carried on the traditions established by their ancestors, producing a true, classic Cheverny that is both simple and elegant. The Delaille brothers have focused their attention on growing fresh, lively Sauvignon Blanc, deeply rooted in the sand, clay, and limestone plains of northeastern Touraine. Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Cot constitute their red grape holdings, creating youthful reds with great aromatics. Gilbert and his sons have also made their own contributions to the heritage of the domaine, including the introduction of sustainable farming practices into the vineyards, as well as temperature-controlled vinification equipment to the winery.
