The Romorantin grape is a white local grape, exclusive of Cour-Cheverny Appellation. It appreciates sandy-silicious terroir, where it offers a robust wine mixed with pretty vegetal flavours (fresh cut grass, sometimes mint notes) and florals (violette…). The final is fresh, quite tense.
Hervé Villemade has been working his family's vines in Cellettes since taking over from his father in 1995. Today, the estate represents about 22 hectares of organically farmed fruit within the Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny AOCs, along with a négociant license to supplement production with local grapes.
