This crisp white comes from France’s
Sancerre region, where chalk and flint soils
give Sauvignon Blanc a minerally intensity.
What You Need To Know
Located inland from France’s Atlantic
coast in the center of the Loire River valley, Sancerre is famous
for its zesty, dry white wines, which by law are made from the
Sauvignon Blanc grape. Unlike fruity California versions or New
Zealand’s grassy examples, Sancerre wines tend toward flavors
and aromas of citrus, chalk and flowers—classic notes that
define this bottling from Jean Reverdy et Fils. The fils (son) in this
case is Christophe Reverdy, who took over for his father in
2005, making him the 10th generation of Reverdys to work their
ancient estate. Christophe ages this single-vineyard wine in
tanks (not barrels), which keeps its flavors bright.
Fresh, pure grapefruit and
lime blossom scents.
Zesty, tangy lemongrass
and chalk notes.
Salads and green vegetables,
tangy fresh cheeses, light
