Just outside of the village of Benais, in the heart of the Touraine, sits the lovely Domaine de la Chanteleuserie. This "place where the larks sing," as the name means, is perched on a limestone plateau in an idyllic landscape. The "Cuvee Alouettes," alluding to the name of the domaine, is fresh, supple, fruity, and ready to be drunk young. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, it displays beautiful raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of herbs and spring flowers. Enjoy this lovely red over the next 2-3 years.
