Domaine de Montcy

Terra Laura is an estate, in the Loire Valley, founded by Laura Semeria and her husband Dominique in 2007. With an aim to produce wines at the highest level the Cheverny appellation has to offer, they purchased an old estate with 15-80 year old vines.  They are also one of the few producers of the tiny appellation of Cour-Cheverny.


90 Points

The dark red-colored 2015 Cheverny Louis de la Saussaye is an assemblage of Pinot Noir and Malbec with a kiss of Gamay; it opens with a clear and intensely fruity, but also pure and fresh aroma of red and dark berries.  Silky-textured, fresh and with fine tannins, this is an elegant, intense, well-concentrated and structured red wine that indicates a gorgeous ripeness of fruit, as well as a skillful winemaking.  Everything is perfectly combined here to harmony and tension.  The 2015 reveals not just a perfect ripeness and precision, but also a great finesse and a persistent finish.  Drink 2016-2022
