ABOUT THIS WINE

The wine rests on its lees for two to three months, stirred three to four times to give a bit more texture.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Domaine Hippolyte Reverdy, a family farm that has been making wine in the Village of Verdigny for several generations, perhaps since the 1600s, is one of Perrine's favorite, producing Sancerres with trademark notes of fresh spring flowers and a zesty, mineral finish. Since Kermit Lynch began to work with founder Hippolyte in the 1980s, the wines have been consistently excellent. The current generation, Julie Guiard—Hippolyte’s granddaughter—is as much a humble farmer as any of her ancestors, foregoing vacation and travel to make sure everything is in exactly the right place in her vines and cellar.
