From: Loire Valley, France
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Taste: The first whiff is expressive, weaving floral fragrances with the aroma of white peach and the tropical allure of pineapple and passion fruit. On the palate, it's perfectly balanced - the entry is honest and is complemented by a refreshing undercurrent, culminating in a finish dominated by enduring acidity and delightful minerality.
Pairing: For those seeking a perfect pairing, the 2022 La Villaudiere Sancerre Blanc exquisitely complements freshwater fish, creamy goat cheese, crisp asparagus, and herb-infused roast chicken. Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese dishes that incorporate these elements work wonderfully well next to this wine; out the recipe below.

About. The picturesque landscape of the Loire Valley, rich with vineyards and poetic beauty, resonates with the passion and dedication of the Reverdy family. For four successive generations, the pulsating heart of the Loire Valley has intertwined with the legacy of the Reverdy family, one where passion for winemaking is virtually ancestral.
Guided by an unwavering compass of passion, integrity, and precision, Jean-Marie Reverdy and his wife Catherine and their two sons, Guillaume and Baptiste, uphold the sanctity of their forefathers' commitment. Their dedication? To the majestic terroirs of the Loire Valley and an immutable respect for the art and people who craft it. Today, the family's heart beats in the Domaine de la Villaudiere, an estate that sprawls amidst a mosaic of 80 plots and nurtures 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Pinot Noir vines. The embodiment of the estate's reverence to nature is evident as it's ensconced in sustainable cultivation, proudly boasting the High Environmental Value Level 3 certification since 2020. This intricate dance between authenticity and modernity aims for a greener, more sustainable viticulture, painting a picture of tradition marrying innovation.
The 2022 La Villaudiere Sancerre Blanc is an excellent example of the domain's expertise. Originating from Sancerre, the epicenter for European Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is a sensory journey. The region's unique soil composition, laced with limestone and fossilized seashells, imprints its unmistakable minerality onto the wine.
Nestled among the lush vineyards and offering a mesmerizing view of the iconic Sancerre hill, the Reverdy estate is a seventh-generation example of tradition and innovation. The daily activities echo patience, perseverance, and precision, reflecting a commitment to uphold and enhance the legacy handed down through the generations. Whether managing the vast vineyards or meticulously crafting the wines, the Reverdy family's dedication shows in every bottle.
