Tasting Notes

This wine shows lovely Sauvignon Blanc character, offering refreshing notes of citrus and herbs on the nose. The palate delivers very lively acidity and ripe, white fleshed fruits. Tangy and well-mineraled on the finish.

Staff Pick Notes

Yes, white wine drinkers, you can have it all. Do you have someone who likes Chardonnay, another who likes Sauvignon Blanc, and the budget for just one bottle? Enter Cheverny! Made of 85% Sauvignon and 15% Chard, this fresh white has body, luscious texture, but not polarizing flavors. Frankly, I rarely buy either grape as a single varietal wine and I was thrilled with the flavors that came from this mighty bottle. Easy to drink as an aperitif and works with fish or asparagus, though no need to limit the possibilities of where this wine might take you.

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
