2019 Hippolyte Reverdy Sancerre

The Hippolyte Reverdy Sancerre is my favorite Sancerre. In my humble opinion, it's what Sauvignon Blanc is all about. Fresh bright clean & just flat out the best Sancerre at Redneck. We don't get much and I grab as much as I can. We had sold out previously, and the rep surprised me when he asked "hey, you want some more Reverdy Sancerre?" I said, "Hell yea! Send it!" Grab it while you can. Stay safe, stay healthy and drink well. Tim Alberdi Redneck Wine Company

2019 Hippolyte Reverdy Sancerre Retail $39.99 Redneck $34.97 Very pure Sancerre aroma, generous, fresh, without grassy edges. The palate is expansive, then the nervosity makes its appearance and the finish is dry and lipsmackingly good. One of the things I love about it is that it leaves on the lips, not the palate, not the throat, but on your lips, a fresh little lemony whisper which makes it a fabulous complement to simple fish dishes. Hippolyte Reverdy’s family has been making wine in the charming village of Verdigny, a commune of Sancerre in the eastern Loire, for many generations—perhaps as far back as 1600. Traditional in nature, the farm was planted to multiple crops, and the Reverdys raised goats and made small quantities of wine from their own vines for local consumption. It was not until the end of World War II that Hippolyte began increasing his Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir production, selling it to accommodate increasing demands from Paris.
