Notes from North Berkeley:
"We like to call Sauvète wines “stress-free” as what’s in the bottle comes not only with a years-long organic certification but also the know-how of four generations of talent from Touraine. The family’s vineyards in Monthou-sur-Cher are exactly what you’d expect in terms of great terroir—their hand-tended plots sit on a south-facing, stony plateau overlooking the river Cher, and are chock-full of older vines. The easy confidence of Jerome and Dominique betrays just how hard this couple works to keep their organic vineyards in tip-top shape. Given just how good these wines are, there’s no question that this dedicated pair could ask two, even three times as much for their hard work. But they don’t."
