Sancerre Blanc, Moulin les Lys, Domaine Reverdy Ducroux
Delicious green apple aromas, with aromatic herbs and bright citrus. The palate is complex, with a fine mineral backbone, lifted acidity, appealing stone fruit and a beautifully long, dry finish.
Un-oaked purity. Typical Sancerre with good fruit, genuine minerality and finesse. A fabulous example of Loire Sauvignon.
The estate was first recorded in 1550, and now numbers more than 50 plots, spread over the Sancerre appellation. Vineyards are managed according to the sustainable principles of lutte raisonnée; Laurent Reverdy took over from his father in 2000. Grasses grow throughout the vineyards, which helps maintain the soil structure, mechanical weeding is favoured over chemicals, copper additions are minimal and quality is enhanced using de-budding and a systematic thinning whenever necessary. They are currently working towards organic status.
