This is a special cuvée Sancerre from the highly awarded Domaine Reverdy. Classic Sauvignon Blanc in a stellar vintage and from an impressive small family domaine, this wine dazzles with its lime and grapefruit intensity and rapier like minerality.
"Lovely honeyed intensity in this bone dry Sancerre with superb minerality and citrus fruits"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for the Loire
Sancerre in the central Loire has been Sauvignon Blanc’s spiritual home for centuries. Here, the cool climate and gentle 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, “the smell and taste of fresh blackcurrants, leaves and all”. The finest examples come from small, independent growers like Reverdy, where father Daniel and son Cyrille work together on their tiny 7-hectare estate. This top cuvée uses grapes grown on 40 year old vines just behind the cellar. Asparagus, citrus and mineral character make this aromatic 2017 a great match for your finest seafood.
