Loire Valley: The Heart of France

This week we are featuring some of Kermit’s wines from the Loire. The Loire Valley is the heart of France, famous for its natural beauty, magnificent châteaux and great wine. The region is rich in history and culture: and, as the Cradle of the French Language, its residents speak the purest French.

Please talk to your sales rep about other wines from this region. Our warehouse is stocked!

2013 Chotard Sancerre Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Loire Valley, France

It stands out as an unusually civilized Sancerre. Sancerre is of course from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, and “civilized” is a word that does not often occur to me when I taste one. Simply delicious.

2013 Chevalier Muscadet “Sur Lie”
100% Melon de Bourgogne
Côtes de Grand Lieu, Loire Valley, France

This Côtes de Grand Lieu has all the classic stony and fresh Muscadet characteristics, and also that added extra je ne sais quoi you find only from the best producers of the region.

2013 Chevalier Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay
Loire Valley, France

Here is a Chard that has seen zero oak. It has an easy simplicity, a directness. Dry, crisp, fresh as can be.

2014 Salvard Cheverny Blanc
85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Chardonnay
Loire Valley, France

We continue to tout the domaine’s wine as one of the greatest values for Sauvignon Blanc perfection –– fresh, vibrant, balanced.

2014 Salvard “Unique” Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Loire Valley, France

The Brothers Delaille must have chosen “Unique” because of its incredible taste and ridiculously low price. Clean, bright, and zesty, this little vin de pays is your perfect solution to just about everything you can possibly imagine.

2013 Salvard “Unique” Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir
Loire Valley, France

What more can you ask for than a bright, fresh, silky Pinot Noir? Drink it now, and often, and introduce all your friends to your new house red.
