    Domaine de Montcy Cheverny Rouge "Louis de la Saussaye" '16

    Loire Valley

    Domaine de Montcy Cheverny Rouge "Louis de la Saussaye" '16

    Domaine de Montcy is an small estate, in the Loire Valley, founded by Laura Semeria in 2007 and has been tended by Vincent Hayer since its modern origins. In 2021 Vincent purchased the estate from Laura and her husband and now leads it into the future. The estate has been certified organic since 2012, and biodynamic (Demeter) since 2015. Vincent’s goal is to work with respect for living things and to put his “know-how at the service of nature to produce healthy and natural wines”. At the end of 2020, the estate even initiated the creation of a new eco-built cellar to support growth and ensure better working conditions for its teams. 

    Cheverny rouge is known for its terroir driven liveliness and fresh qualities. Though somewhat lesser known than the white wine grown in Loire Valley, the reds can be stunning all the same. Red wine here is comprised of mostly equal parts Gamay and Pinot Noir (and sometimes a dose of spicy Côt). They are chillable “food wines” that edge on the lighter side of the spectrum, but typically have a touch of grip and power when they are great. Domaine de Montcy accomplishes this and more with the ‘16 we can’t wait for you to try it. A little time in bottle has produced well integrated acidity while retaining freshness. 

    This is a joyful wine, laden with juicy cherry, tart pomegranate and soft rose. Vincent calls it “buddy wine” and it is easy to see why- it is meant to be shared over a simple, but delicious meal. A hint of earthiness and vegetal notes are balanced by fine, ripe tannins. This is excellent for pairing with fresh heirloom tomato pasta, good olive oil and friends. Definitely try it will a little chill before bringing it out to the patio table it is so destined to be on.
