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

Spread over 28 plots, La Villaudière vineyards are over 30 years old on average. The vines mainly enjoy a south-southeast exposure where maturation is gradual and even. The typical character of this Sancerre white is the result of a blend of the two main Sancerre soil types. Firstly, the vast calcareous clay slopes locally referred to as «Terres Blanches» which produces wines that are more complex, more robust and with more fat from the clay. Then there are the dry, stony limestone hills locally known as «Caillotes», producing fruity wines with floral nuances.

Vinification

The grapes are pressed within 3 hours of harvesting. After settling for 12 to 24 hours, the must is placed in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks where fermentation takes place at between 15 and 20°C. At the end of fermentation, the first racking is carried out to remove the first lees. They begin bottling in the spring, following blending, clarification and stabilization treatments.

Tasting Notes

This wine displays a limpid, pale yellow hue with golden highlights. Expressive on the nose, combining floral fragrances with aromas of white peach and exotic fruit (pineapple, passion fruit). Well-balanced and honest on entry, the wine is underpinned by refreshing, long-lasting acidity on the finish, with a lovely minerality.

Food Pairing

Served between 8 to 10°C. This wine is ideal with fish, shellfish or poultry in a light tomatoe based sauce.
