Pascal Reverdy and his sister-in-law Sophie (Nicolas’ widow) produce precise, powerfully concentrated, energetic wines. The same strata of Kimeridgean clay that gives Chablis its classic mineral zip surfaces in the Reverdys’ village of Maimbray, which helps to explain the tension and verve we always find in their white Sancerre. This 2016 is a splendid wine. Aromas are intensely scented, with lively citrus and floral notes. The palate has wonderful depth, full body, a mouth-filling texture and intricate flavour. The clarity of the fruit is stunning, the finish being racy and full of finesse.
