Wine Critic Reviews:

(Sancerre “les Terres Blanches”- Domaine Chevreau (Crezancy)) Nicolas Chevreau is a young winegrower making lovely Sancerre. His 2018 Terres Blanches bottling delivers a refined bouquet of lime, green apple, limestone minerality, spring flowers and just a whisper of grassiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and classy, with a good core of fruit, excellent soil signature, bright acids and very good length and grip on the still fairly youthful finish. This is a fine example. (Drink between 2019-2028)

Savory, featuring herbal and mineral notes behind white peach and grapefruit flavors. Shows a bit of a grip midpalate, with savory minerality lingering on the finish. Well-balanced and complex, exhibiting great intensity and focus. Drink now through 2026. 950 cases imported.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Region Loire: Loire Valley has it all. Whether you prefer some of the most famous grape varieties worldwide, or you like to be surprised with secretly brilliant wines, Loire Valley will make you return any time you have a chance. It's unquestionably one of the most diverse, and sometimes unjustly neglected, wine regions in France. Located on the banks of the Loire river, these vineyards are home to some of the most exquisite French wines. And not only does Loire Valley provide us with top-rated wines each year, but it also deserves applause for the number of bottles it produces. The most prominent grape varieties of Loire are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne. They are undoubtedly the crown jewels of this region, although reds, such as Cabernet Franc, Bourgueil, or Pinot Noir don't fall much behind. With such exceptional grape varieties, it's impossible to think the Loire wouldn't treat us all with absolutely magnificent wines. It offers a wide palette of crisp and refreshing whites, as well as dry, elegant reds. To feel the magic and the impeccable quality of Loire wines, we recommend Domaine Didier Dagueneau, Foreau Domaine du Clos Naudin, or Domaine Huet of Le Haut Lieu.
Type of Wine Sancerre: Sancerre is one of the most well-regarded wine districts within the Loire Valley in France. Although it's quite small, it will leave you speechless with its remarkable wines, typically whites, as they are the trademark of the district. Some of the best Sancerres are Sauvignon blanc grape variety blends, but there's also a popular rose made of Pinot Noir.

Varietal Sauvignon Blanc: This green-skinned wonder-varietal is one of the most represented white wine grapes in Bordeaux, and that fact alone gives it all the credibility you could ask for. Sauvignon Blanc is used for dessert wines and makes an excellent standalone varietal bottle. It's known as one of only a few wines in the whole world that can perfectly complement a plate of sushi. Outside of France, you can expect to encounter this varietal in Chile, Romania, Australia, Washington, California, and many other locations.
