So, a geography/appellation note here: Cheverny is the broader appellation where Villemade is located, and Cour-Cheverny is the tiny appellation within it, and for the moment, it's just dedicated to a single local grape variety, Romorantin. Very few wineries actually bottle Cour-Cheverny, and Villemade is really trying to revive the variety in his area. This grape is really only from here and it's typically dry and complex, with a lot of the seriousness/structure you'd find with good chardonnay. Les Saules is usually Villemade's most forward Cour-Cheverny, from 40 year old vines and raised in pyramid shaped (tronconique) vats, both stainless steel and wood. Herbal notes, anjou pear fruit, spring flowers and bracing acidity, this has loads of character. A great pivot for anyone obsessed with Chablis.
