Red wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "Pascal Reverdy makes this wine in homage to his brother Nicolas, who passed away in a vineyard accident in 2007. The grapes are destemmed, receive a short “cold soak” and are fermented in oak fermenters and then aged in demi-muids for twelve months, with a maximum of twenty percent new oak used. The 2015 version is outstanding on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet wafting from the glass in a mix of red and black cherries, a dollop of blood orange, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, a beautiful base of chalky soil elements, gamebird and just a touch of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and very complex, with a beautiful core of fruit, ripe tannins, tangy acids and excellent balance and grip on the long, complex and still fairly youthful finish. Many examples of Sancerre rouge are a bit rustic in personality, but this is most emphatically not the case for this stellar bottle! 2025- 2055." — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
