Domaine Philippe Tessier Cheverny "Le Point du Jour" 2016
We talk a fair amount about the wines whose bottles are the “first to be emptied” when we’re tasting alongside our fellow wine geeks. Many of them, like this wine, are the humblest of the bunch in terms of price/reputation—but they over-deliver in the pleasure department.
“This is perhaps the quintessential ‘wine bar wine’ and, therefore, not easy to find at retail. This Loire Valley red is a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay, I highly recommended it for the by-the-glass list at your house!”
