Domaine Reverdy’s fine 2020 epitomises the elegant, complex and minerally character that has made Sancerre an enduring benchmark style for centuries. Classic, flinty Sauvignon Blanc in a stellar vintage and from an impressive small family domaine.
The village of Sancerre in the central Loire has been Sauvignon Blanc’s spiritual home for centuries. Here, the cool climate and limestone hills bring out an intensity of aroma and raciness of flavour in the grape that is unmatched anywhere else. “Gun-flint – the smell of sparks when flint strikes metal – is one way to characterise it” says Hugh Johnson. Plus, he adds, “the smell and taste of fresh blackcurrants, leaves and all” (Wine Companion). The finest examples come typically from small, independent growers like Reverdy – this tiny, seven hectare estate has won a disproportionate number of awards in recent years. Cut grass, gooseberry and mineral character make this aromatic 2020 a great match for pan fried fish or goat's cheese salad.
"An excellent example of Sancerre. Delicious. Clean and crisp, would definitely buy again"
