2018 Hervé Villemade Les Acacias
This wine is made from the Romorantin grape, in fact the tiny Cour-Cheverny appellation is the only place in France where it is produced.
Hervé Villemade has Romorantin vines that are nearly 60 years old and the grapes from these vines are used exclusively to make this wine. These vines are bordered by lovely large acacia trees which give the name to the wine. The wine was matured in 500 litre barrels. This is a fascinating wine because it has been deliberately oxidised to bring out the best qualities of the grape.
