About Domaine Cheveau
A 14 hectare family estate run by Nicolas Cheveau, his brother Julien and wife Aurelie. The land is worked mainly by hand and horse and the family do not use chemicals in the vineyard, choosing to promote biodiversity. You can see an array of grasses and wildflowers amongst the vines which, as well as looking beautiful, help the health of the soil and mitigate against soil erosion.
Peach, apple, a touch of honey and nuttiness from 7-8 months lees ageing. The lees ageing provides a lovely rich texture to the wine. A fresh finish helps keep this full bodied white exceedingly drinkable and a long finish gives you good indication of the quality.
