"Cuvée Renaissance is a special cuvée of Romorantin made only in the best vintage years from old vines of between 50-80 years. The wine is a late harvest, botrytised, off-dry version of Romorantin. The wine offers zesty citrus flavors, hints of hazelnut and mineral flavors. It finishes with just a touch of fruit to round out the experience. This is a truly remarkable wine that seems to combine the best qualities of Chenin Blanc with the mineral steeliness of Melon de Bourgogne." —importer
"Cazin makes this wine only in the ripest vintages, when the grapes on his 80-year-old romorantin vines are affected by botrytis. He ferments the juice in stainless steel and ages it in barrel, creating a wine that will drive lovers of Cour-Cheverny to frenzied distraction. Being one of them, I can’t necessarily predict that the romorantin-averse will find this wine as exciting as I do, but if anything will convert you, this is it. It has the pale, classical beauty of a 1940s film noir star, completely intoxicating in its delicacy. Its ripping acidity carries a mineral essence, reminding one Virginia-based taster of Colonial Williamsburg, where oyster shells line the streets. Formidable in the persistence of its flavors, this is the Cour-Cheverny you want in your cellar." —Wine & Spirits Magazine
