Domaine du Salvard Cheverny 2019
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Cheverny|
|Brand||Domaine du Salvard|
While not untrue, calling Cheverny a value alternative to Sancerre would completely overlook the virtues unique to this appellation. It is a much zippier expression of Sauvignon Blanc compared to its famous neighbor, more citrusy than grassy, while the addition of some Chardonnay in the tank adds a lovely peachy note. A brisk, zesty white like this brilliantly complements a lunchtime salad of whatever fresh produce you can get your hands on, such as cucumber and avocado, abundantly seasoned with a medley of shredded herbs like basil, mint, and cilantro. Two or three glasses of Salvard make for a salivating cure to the warm-weather blues before you drift off into your afternoon nap.
