Wine runs through the veins of the Reverdy family. For four generations, it has remained inspired by the same values: a hereditary attachment to the Loire Valley, an instinctive passion for the terroirs and an innate respect for people and work.

Passion, integrity and accuracy are the key words that drive the members of the domain. Today, Jean-Marie REVERDY, guided by his vocation, makes the estate prosper with his wife Catherine and his two sons, Guillaume and Baptiste. The cellars are located in the middle of the vines. This unique location offers a breathtaking view of the famous hill of SANCERRE and its vineyard.

Spread over a mosaic of 80 plots, the vineyard is planted with 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Pinot Noir. This distribution allows the vines to express themselves fully on soils of marl “Terres Blanches”, limestone “Caillottes” and flint. In sustainable cultivation for several years, the estate has been certified High Environmental Value Level 3 since 2020. Their approach, a combination of authenticity and modernity, is constantly moving towards an ever more sustainable and eco-friendly type of viticulture.

Sauvignon Blanc, a very recognizable white wine that is popularly dry, refreshingly zesty, and has strong, fruity and herbal characteristics. Ever hear of the term “pyrazines?” It’s a term noting the strong herbaceous flavors that are derived from compounds called Methoxypyrazines. These compounds are also found in bell peppers! A flagship varietal to the Loire Valley in France (Sancerre) and New Zealand, the Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand tend to be more aromatic and have tropical fruit notes than those from the Bordeaux or Loire Valley regions in France. Usually fermented in stainless steel vats, Sauvignon Blanc gives a clean, crisp flavor with occasional mineral notes, but no characteristics from oak, like you would normally see in a grape varietal like Chardonnay. However, look out for Fumé Blanc, this style of wine is an oaked-version of Sauvignon Blanc.

The Loire is actually the largest river in France and the Loire Valley is a large region that follows as it flows towards the Atlantic. Another cooler climate region in France, the Loire Valley produces many exciting and exceptional red, rosé, and white wines in a variety of styles. Lean and lively white varieties like Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadet (Melon de Bourgogne or Melon Blanc) dominate in many sub-regions here including Anjou-Saumur, Touraine, and the Upper Loire (Centre). Rustic reds like Cabernet Franc, Gamay, and Côt (Malbec) are also grown in smaller areas. Some of the most infamous for Cabernet Franc are that of Bourgueil and Chinon located in the Touraine (Middle Loire). The Loire Valley is also known to produce quality sparkling wines from grape varieties including Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc (for rosé). You’ll often find these wines to be tart with fresh fruit flavors and labelled as Crémant de Loire.
