“A great wine is born from a beautiful grape, from a vineyard cultivated with respect and high standards”
Baptiste et Guillaume Reverdy, Winemaker.
The Corky Verdict
Amy – A dry but refreshing Sauvignon Blanc that I have enjoyed drinking a number of times with food or on its own. It is a typically French Sauvignon, floral, green fruits and a little grassy but well balanced. It is a real winner with with cold shellfish and picnic food.
Sam –This is not your average French Sauvignon Blanc- This is such a delicate and well rounded wine. If you usually drink Marlborough Sauvignon then you should definitely try this unique wine. This would be amazing as an aperitif, or with chicken or meaty fish dishes.

The fruit of several generations, this family farm of 15 hectares is located in the middle of the vineyards and overlooks the pretty village of Verdigny. This unique location offers a breath-taking view of the famous Sancerre hill and its vineyards. Today, Jean-Marie Reverdy, guided by his passion, is making the Villaudiere estate prosper with his wife, Catherine, and his two sons, Guillaume and Baptiste. “Wine has been in our family’s blood for eleven generations. We remain inspired by the same values: a hereditary attachment to the Loire Valley, an instinctive passion for the terroirs, an innate respect for people and work.” Patience, perseverance and accuracy are the key words that drive the members of the Villaudiere domain. From the management of the vine to the production of the wines, each one perpetuates and develops the work started by previous generations. Placed between authenticity and modernity, this philosophy leads them every day to rigour and respect.
