Notes from North Berkeley:
"The Cherrier family has been a trusted name in the Loire Valley since the late 1800s. In the village of Chaudoux, the family’s home just north of the village of Sancerre proper, Sauvignon Blanc is equally in its element: soils are a refined mix of flint and chalk, a terroir marriage that makes the best Sancerre so vibrant. Today it is Pierre Cherrier’s sons, François and Jean-Marie, who have taken winemaking at this generations-deep estate to a whole new level, with terroir-true wines that are stunning values for their high quality. This winemaking duo let their curiosity take them to neighboring appellation Menetou-Salon, where Sauvignon Blanc delivers more intense flavors with a lighter, more refined texture."
