Producer Profile – The Story
RAISON D’ETRE – Sauvignon Gris, Single vineyard Muscadet and superb value Pinot Noir
RISING STAR – Eric Chevalier is very much part of the modern movement in Nantes. After stints with Laroche (Chablis) and LGCF (Giant French wine company) he returned to his father’s Domaine de l’Aujardière in Muscadet.
FIE GRIS – Eric is a huge ambassador for Sauvignon Gris, an ancient variety from the Loire long pulled up in place of the more profitable Sauvignon Blanc. Imagine Herbal Sauvignon crossed with a dabble of Alsatian exoticism.
