Sancerre, Domaine de la Villaudiere 2015

 

Producer Note

Domaine de la Villaudiere is owned by Jean-Marie Reverdy together with his son Guillaume. Handed down through several generations, this 15 hectare family estate overlooks the pretty village of Verdigny. The unique location offers stunning views of the famous Sancerre hill and its vineyards. Patience, perseverance and precision are the bywords of all those involved in Domaine de la Villaudiere. From the management of the vineyards to the production of the wines, the family continues and builds on the work begun by the previous generations which gives their wines a captivating blend of authenticity and modernity.

Viticulture

Sustainable growing (Lutte Raisonee). The vines selected for the wine are around twenty years old. Enjoying an easterly exposure, ripening is slow and gradual. The vines are partially thinned in July to maintain good health throughout the growing cycle and obtain good maturity.

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.

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc 100%

Food match

Serve between 8 to 10°C. This Sancerre will be best appreciated with fish and light poultry dishes and summer-time meals.

Tasting notes 

Lively mineral tones are complemented by fresh green fruits through to a long and zesty finish. Classic Sancerre from a top grower.
