Domaine Reverdy Ducroux 2021 Les Vignes Silex Sancerre

$ 33.99

As we've mentioned before, Sancerre lovers have a love hate relationship with the 2020 & 2021 vintages.  Love them because they were delicious and high quality vintages, but hate the fact that they were of such high quality because yields were way down.  This means its been difficult for us to keep the shelves stocked.  We've got a limited about of Reverdy Ducroux's Les Vignes Silex arriving today.

The Revery-Ducroux family has been cultivating its wines on the famous Sancerre hillsides for 14 generations. With a passion for the colorful expressions of his terroirs, Laurent Reverdy, alongside his team, chooses perfectly ripe fruit from vineyards grown on the family's most flinty sites to go into the Les Vignes Silex.  This rare Terroir (20% of the Sancerre Appellation) gives a unique style to the Sauvignon Blanc and is therefore the most sought-after.

The nose is intense and inviting here, with ripe pear, red apple and sweet spices. The palate is rich, complex and round combining the green, fresh acidity of citrus and to the ripeness of white melon, nectarine. An emotional, evocative, intense wine, that carries its weight with lightness and elegance and ends with a dense, rich mineral finish.
