Emmanuel Delaille Cheverny, Domaine du Salvard
Domaine du Salvard has been a working domaine since 1898, through five hardworking generations of the Delaille family. Today, all forty-two hectares of vineyards are farmed by the capable brother team of Emmanuel and Thierry Delaille, with help from their father Gilbert. To our delight, they have carried on the traditions established by their ancestors, producing a true, classic Cheverny that is both simple and elegant. The Delaille brothers have focused their attention on growing fresh, lively Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Gamay, and Cot constitute their red grape holdings, creating youthful reds with great aromatics. Until finally achieving A.O.C. status in 1993, Cheverny was widely regarded as one of the best V.D.Q.S. (Vin de Qualité Superieur) of the Loire. We continue to tout the domaine’s wine as one of the greatest values for Sauvignon Blanc perfection. Smells crisp and tropical, nice bright flavors, a bit like a tart Granny Smith apple and lime rind with light undertones of minerality. Utterly bone dry.
