2010 Reverdy Sancerre “Les Coutes” $21.99

Winery: Pascal & Nicolas Reverdy

Region: Sancerre, Loire, France

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Type: White Wine

Sancerre drinkers beware: You’ve got to separate the lifeless “all lemon, no soul” plonk from the mineral laced, mouth-watering intensity of the real Sancerre deal. Well Reverdy is the real deal. The nose shows a touch of richness but then quickly transforms into a diabolical mineral bath with some fantastic herbal notes on the finish. This is Sancerre with nuance and can only come from the chalk rich soils of the Loire. Accept no substitutes when you want that specific terroir-driven flavor that pairs so precisely with fish and lemon drizzled dishes.
