Successful in Winemaking more than 100 Years

Domaine de la Désoucherie – For more than one hundred years, generations of the Tessier family have been making wine in Cour-Cheverny. Today Fabien and Christian manage the winery with the great team of talented wine experts. The winery’s 25 hectares produce wines in 3 appellations in vineyards in an elevated position on clay-silica soils. In the Cheverny appellation, they produce reds, whites and rosés, and in Crémant de Loire sparkling whites. The third appellation, Cour-Cheverny, they produce only white wine. This is a relatively new appellation as it was recognised in 1993. The Tessier produce their wines according to the guidance of Terra Vitis. In fact, this organisation of winegrowers from all over France has 900 members. Their aim is to carefully combine the old traditions with the principles of organic viticulture and what the winery successfully applied for their work. The rules govern planting, hygiene and use of chemicals.

The Rare Romorantin Grape Variety

Cour-Cheverny is notable because of the Romorantin grape variety. While, this is a sister grape of Chardonnay, which used to grow throughout the Loire. It only grows in Cour-Cheverny nowadays. The Solea Cour-Cheverny made from 100% Romorantin grapes has taken gold and silver medals in competition.

Gold Medals for Domaine de la Désoucherie

In the Crémant de Loire appellation, the winery makes a sparkling white and a sparkling rosé. The white is a crisp dry blend of pinot blanc and Chardonnay grapes. It deservedly took the gold medal at the Vignerons Indépendants competition in 2005. The Cheverny red “Quartet” is a blend of Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir. Ten months ageing in wooden barrels gives a deep red colour and an intense spicy flavour. Domaine de la Désoucherie has won gold medals for their sparkling white and rosé wines.
