François Cazin le Petit Chambord White Blend Cheverny le Petit Chambord 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Nice steely texture drives ginger, chamomile and almond flavors, with a long, minerally finish. Drink now through 2011. The wines of Francois Cazin were unfamiliar to me until last year, which means that I had been missing the finest of their appellations. He boasts a high average age of vines, bottles by gravity, and obviously is unafraid and able to harvest very ripe, yet with superb acid retention. Cazin tends vines of considerable age and the resulting yields are well below average in any given year. His Cheverny is fresh and floral, with appley-texture and crisp acidity. The flavors are sleek and precise. Since 1997, the wine has been bottled unfiltered by gravity. His wines have consistently been the top pick of the vintage at the annual Loire Valley wine show in Angers.
