Chenonceaux is a charming little commune that overlooks the river Cher, a tributary of the Loire River. It’s considered by many to be the best spot in the Touraine appellation for Sauvignon Blanc, and we may have to concur. Simon Tardieux has a long history in the Loire, going back to his teenage days working with Catherine Roussel and Didier Barouillet at Clos Roche Blance. His neighbor, Alain Courtault, farms his vineyards organically, and has joined Simon to create their small estate nestled in the Loire et Cher. There is a beautiful density to this wine, and no notes of grapefruit or lychee that are often found in the Sauvignon Blancs from Sancerre, to the east. Organic/biodynamic farming and careful hand harvesting, aging with old wood, no new oak. Highly recommended! Eben Lillie
