Pascal Bellier, Cour Cheverny Blanc, 2018
Located in Vineuil in the Loire Valley, close to Blois and right above the Loire River is where, in 1960, the domaine was established. It is here in Cheverny that Pascal grows his Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Gamay on silicieous clay, and the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Romorantin on the sandy, pebbly soils. Averaging around 20 years of age, some plots date back 50 years while others are recent additions; his wines show a liveliness and vivacity and reflect the sustainable efforts they undergo to keep the land in harmony. In Cour-Cheverny Pascal produces the coveted Romorantin, which continues to show their longevity when grown with care.
