Story

Handed down through several generations, this family estate is surrounded by vineyards and overlooks the famous village of Verdigny. This unique location offers stunning views of the famous Sancerre hill. Today Jean-Marie Reverdy manages the flourishing Domaine de la Villaudière with his wife, Catherine and their son, Guillaume. The youngest son, Baptiste also shares a love of wine. Once he has finished his studies, he intends to play his part in the family business...

Vineyard

Planted 40 years ago, the vines are now reaching the pinnacle of their quality potential. 50% is planted in clay-limestone soil locally referred to as «Terres Blanches» and 50% in dry, stony limestone soil called «Caillotes.» Vines on all plots are disbudded and have the leaves thinned. The grapes enjoy ideal conditions for ripening in the summer. We take regular samples of grapes before the harvest to determine the optimum time for picking.

Tasting Notes

With a strong garnet hue with crimson highlights, this wine opens with a bouquet which is a delectable blend of ripe red fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). Supple on entry, with noticeable maturing tannins on the finish, the wine confirms the elegance of this light, fruity Sancerre on the palate.

Food Pairing

Served between 12 to 14°C, this red Sancerre goes perfectly with white meat, small game or cheese.
