Pinot Noir lovers Alert! Only a handful of bottles were we able to obtain of this unusual red from Loire Valley. Dark ruby in the glass, aromatic with floral notes of lilacs and purple flowers, hints of underlying green herbs. Soft and plush on the palate, blueberry compote, cumin and red gooseberry swirl on the decadent texture. Complex and a staff favorite!
Domaine Tessier was founded in 1961 by Roger Tessier, with his son Philippe taking the reins 20 years later in 1981. They are located in the heart of the Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny AOC’s and currently have 23 ha of vines. The vineyard exists in a microclimate that keeps the vineyards cool, situated between the Loire River and the forest of Cheverny, Chambord and Solonge and has been Ecocert certified since 1998.
