Located about 35 minutes north from the city of Nantes, Philippe Chevarin has been producing wines in his teeny tiny cellar from his 5 hectares of organically farmed grapes for just 7 years. Before Louis/Dressner began importing his wines, Chevarin was selling some of his grapes to a couple of our favorite producers, Pierre-O Bonhomme and René Mosse. Chevarin left a career in the music industry to follow his passion for farming and winemaking and has so far successfully made all of his wine without the addition of sulfur.

Les Alouettes is roughly 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Melon de Bourgogne. The grapes are directly pressed, and fermented and aged on lees before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Upon first tasting the wine, I assumed that it was all Melon de Bourgogne, as it's very fresh and mineral, which is surprising for Sauvignon from this area. Bright and lively, and has a lightly creamy texture, with notes of fresh melon, lemon peel and pear accompanying a long, salty and earthy finish.
