Jean Marie Reverdy Sancerre La Villaudière 2020, Loire Valley, France

The fruit of several generations, this family business of 15 hectares is located in the middle of the vineyards and overlooks the pretty village of Verdigny. This unique situation offers an unobstructed view of the famous hill of Sancerre and its vineyard. Today, Jean-Marie Reverdy, guided by his vocation, makes the Domaine de la Villaudière prosper with his wife, Catherine, and his two sons, Guillaume and Baptiste. Patience, perseverance, and accuracy are the key words that animate the members of Domaine de la Villaudière. From the management of the vineyard to the elaboration of the wines, each one perpetuates and continues the work begun by the previous generations. Placed between authenticity and modernity, this philosophy leads them every day towards rigor and respect. From the harvest to the bottling, the grapes, the must and the wine are the object of our most meticulous attention so that each cuvée reveals the particularities of its terroir of origin. “Beautiful deep and intense ruby color. The nose is expressive and reveals complex aromas of ripe fruit enhanced by roasted and smoky notes. After a rather supple attack, the wine presents a beautiful amplitude, all in finesse and elegance.”
