Pascal Bellier Cheverny Rouge 2016 75cl
Located in Vineuil in the Loire Valley, close to Blois and right above the Loire River is where, in 1960, the domaine was established. It is here in Cheverny that Pascal grows his Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Gamay on silicieous clay, and the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Romorantin on the sandy, pebbly soils. Averaging around 20 years of age, some plots date back 50 years while others are recent additions; his wines show a liveliness and vivacity and reflect the sustainable efforts they undergo to keep the land in harmony.Terra Vitis Certified.
This red is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Gamay. It is a light bright red colour and on the palate it displays a charming delicacy and freshness with flavours of red cherry fruit with spicy touches. This is a wine for drinking in its youth and would benefit from being slightly chilled.
It would pair well with poultry grilled meat and cheese.
