Domaine de la Villaudiere belongs to the family firm of jean-Marie Reverdy et Fils and is located in Verdigny, close to the famous hill of Sancerre with its calcareous soils close to the river Loire. For generations the family has cultivated this 15 hectare vineyard which is now run by Jean-Marie Reverdy, his wife, Catherine and his elder son, Guillaume. Their younger son, Baptiste, will also join the firm when he finishes his education.
The Reverdy family philosophy is one of respect for the vineyard, patience and to maintain the tradition established by their forebears by blending tradition with modernity. Unlike some firms who produce wines from other local appellations, Reverdy specialise only in Sancerre, producing all three types: red, white and rose.
The reference of Jean Marie Reverdy in Rosé shows fresh aromas of strawberry, raspberry, currant and minerals, with a complex and tense palate. Wine Very intense!
This wine comes from the Reverdy family’s 15 hectares of vineyard in the Loire vineyards of central France. Sancerre is made on very calcareous stony soils on the other side of the river from Pouilly, which were once under the sea. All wines are domaine bottled.
This white wine is made from the Sauvignon blanc grown on very limestone soils on the other side of the river from Pouilly which is the 15 hectare land that the Reverdy family has been mourning for several generations in the Loire, central France. This land was once under the sea and it shows in the minerality of this wine.
From the 15 hectare domaine of the Reverdy family in the Loire vineyards of central France, this is classic Pouilly, made on very calcareous stony soils which were once under the sea and which give the wine the very slight smoky aroma some tasters observe.
