This Cour-Cheverny is 100% Romorantin, a rare wine variety brought to the area in 1519 by king Francois 1er. The old vines on the Domaine des Huards estate are organically cultivated - in fact the entire process from vine to bottling is carried out according to the ultra-organic "biodymamic" principles. Most important for us, however, is the wine in the glass: pale gold in color, with aromas of yellow fruits, peach and apricot, perhaps a hint of lemon/lime, with honey and mineral tones. On the palate the Cour-Cheverny's body is on the medium + side. One taster described the mouth feel as "tightly wound and vibrant," while another had it as "lovely, with a nice roundness". All of which suggests that this is one of the most complex and exciting whites we've tasted in all our days. Excellent now, the 2010 Domaine des Huards Cour-Cheverny is liable to grow in complexity for years to come.
