Notes from the Producer:

"At the heart of the Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny appellations of origin in the very town of Cheverny, the 26-hectare family estate is located on the road to the Loire castles (Chambord, Cheverny, Blois, and Troussay). Philippe Tessier took over the estate in 1981, which his father Roger created in 1961. In February 2020, Simon, son of Philippe, took over the reins of the estate.

The microclimate is influenced by the Loire and by the forests of Cheverny, Chambord and Sologne. The vines are planted in three communes: Cormeray, Cheverny and Cellettes.

Two appellations coexist: AOC Cour-Cheverny, a white wine produced with Romorantin, a local grape variety, and AOC Cheverny, which comes in white, rosé and red. Blended wines with for the white, a predominance of Sauvignon supplemented by Chardonnay and Orbois. For the rosé and the red, Pinot Noir and Gamay dominating and Côt as a complement."

About the cuvee:

"Toc" is a playful reference to the "Cot" grape - otherwise known as Malbec. Tessier's Cot is asged in large, neutral barrels, and bottled unfiltered and unfined.
