2019 Pascal et Nicolas Reverdy Terre de Maimbray Sancerre
Pascal Reverdy’s domaine is based in the tiny hamlet of Maimbray. Maimbray is located in a valley surrounded by chalk hills adjacent to Chavignol and Verdigny. From their small cellar they produce one of France’s most highly awarded Sancerres’.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a faint greenish tinge around the edges and a watery hue. On the nose herbaceous grassy scents are followed by green apple, lime, light asparagus and subtle smoky notes. Very textural and intensely flavoured, the palate is decorated with pear and lime fruits which have a gentle herbaceous overlay. Subtle notions of grassy asparagus characters and gun flint lie beneath. Finishes dry with brisk acidity and a fullish aftertaste that shows plenty of length.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
