Domaine Reverdy-Ducroux, Sancerre Chene Marchand 2018 750ML
Sancerre, Loire Valley, France 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown on flinty soil
About the Producer: The domaine Reverdy Ducroux represents more than 70 parcels of land spread over the most famous of the Sancerre vineyards, at a height of 250m.
The winemaking takes place in cellars renovated during the last 40 years. The natural caves favour producing the best possible wines by protecting the juice from the air, racking by gravity and benefit from the natural temperature of being underground.
History of Sancerre: As with all the vineyards in the Loire valley, Sancerre dates back to ancient times. It is mentioned in the 1st century by PLINE, and again by Grégoire de Tours, but its development is above all due to the work of the Augustine monks of the Abbey of Saint-Satur and medieval landlords.
The diverse terroirs (small stones, white soils or flint) are all influenced by the microclimate of the Loire.
