Although Cheverny is not well-known compared to other the Loire Valley appellations, such as Pouilly-Fumé or Sancerre, with which it is often compared, in certain respects it is even more interesting. Unlike Pouilly-Fumé or Sancerre, which are made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Cheverny uses a substantial percentage of Chardonnay, the archetypal grape of white Burgundy. The use of Chardonnay gives Cheverny a roundness, juiciness, and soft opulence that is most appealing. Domaine Sauger dates back to 1870, and this cuvée is made from the estate's oldest vines, which provide even greater depth than its regular bottling. Michel Labardin calls this a "summer sipper suprême," and I would be hard-pressed to disagree.
