If only every Sauvignon Blanc could taste like this! Nothing grassy or tropical about this little number from the eastern part of the Loires Touraine region. Instead, picture lime blossoms delivered via a lightning bolt of minerally refreshment, with more zippy citrus and blossoming flowers leaving your palate cleansed and utterly charmed.

The wine is vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel cuvees and aged on fine lees in stainless steel tanks.

Domaine du Salvard has been a working domaine since 1898, through five hardworking generations
of the Delaille family. Today, all forty-two hectares of vineyards are farmed by the capable brother
team of Emmanuel and Thierry Delaille, with help from their father Gilbert. To our delight, they
have carried on the traditions established by their ancestors, producing a true, classic Cheverny that
is both simple and elegant. The Delaille brothers have focused their attention on growing fresh,
lively Sauvignon Blanc, deeply rooted in the sand, clay, and limestone plains of northeastern
Touraine. Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Cot constitute their red grape holdings, creating youthful reds
with great aromatics. Gilbert and his sons have also made their own contributions to the heritage of
the domaine, including the introduction of sustainable farming practices into the vineyards, as well
as temperature-controlled vinification equipment to the winery.

Until finally achieving A.O.C. status in 1993, Cheverny was widely regarded as one of the best
V.D.Q.S. (Vin de Qualité Superieur) of the Loire. However, some argue that this A.O.C.-in-waiting
designation was a political maneuver by the I.N.A.O. to keep Cheverny’s delicious, sprightly
Sauvignon Blanc out of competition with the other more famous appellations of Sancerre and
Pouilly-Fumé. Kermit was the first to discover the charm and value of Cheverny back in 1978 when
he imported the Domaine Jean Gueritte. He took on the Cheverny of Domaine du Salvard in 1992,
a year before the status change in the appellation. We continue to tout the domaine’s wine as one of
the greatest values for Sauvignon Blanc perfection.
