Domaine Hippolyte Reverdy, Sancerre 2012

Domaine Hippolyte Reverdy, Sancerre 2012Rebecca Murphy, writing for the Dallas News, praised the wines of Sancerre writing that its was hard to find a more “refreshing, yet elegant white wine than Sancerre.”

She said: “This one from the Reverdy family in Verdigny, France, has flinty, herbal and grapefruit aromas that alert the taste buds to get ready for mouthwatering lychee and pink grapefruit flavors with chalky notes. Those bright flavors walk a tightrope of racy acidity, making the tongue tingle. This is the perfect wine for oysters on the half shell.

“Sancerre wines come from the Loire River Valley in central France. The vineyards of Sancerre are clustered around the medieval hillside town of the same name. The whites are made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape and the reds and rosés are made from the Pinot Noir grape.

“The Reverdy family has been involved in making wine for several generations, but as is the case with many farmers in France, grapes are just one of many crops they tended. It was only after World War II that Hippolyte Reverdy began focusing on wine production due to increasing demand. Today his son, Michel, farms the estate’s 35.5 acres of vineyards and manages all aspects of the wine production.”

Price: $25 to 28
