Cheverny Blanc Vieilles Vignes. Clos des Cendres 2008 White Wine Tasting Notes:
The Clos des Cendres is a lieu-dit with a siliceous clay terroir and vines of 60-80 years of age. The blend here is 50% Sauvignon, 50% Chardonnay. A very different expression from the straight Cheverney – a real vins de terroirs, with an intense minerality. Dry, flinty and mineral with ripe stony fruit and citrus acidity. Superb definition, balance and length.
