    o7 cheverny Importer Kermit Lynch says: “In my view, Salvard’s Cheverny is the best Sauvignon Blanc value in the world, especially if you value classic varietal character in the Loire style, meaning relatively low alcohol, intense perfume, and crisp, invigorating body. Cheverny, which boasts a stunning château, is located between Reuilly and the great Chenin Blanc appellation of Vouvray. It is the northwest fringe of the Loire’s Sauvignon Blanc country.”
