Red Sancerre is often somewhat of a gamble. Ripening the glorious Pinot Noir grape in northern France is not always easy and many are hollow and undernourished. I reckon four or five vintages out of ten is the going rate from a decent winery, but Reverdy is a first class set up and they always hit the mark. Like a slender but curvy Côte de Beaune with more brightness on the finish, this is a very easy wine to demolish, such is its hypnotic allure. Again — a wine that loves to be served a few degrees cooler than normal, this is a classic trois étoiles wine for an everyday price and this makes it unmissable.
