There is Sancerre rouge and then there is Reverdy Sancerre rouge! Michel Reverdy has dedicated a goodly proportion of his career to figuring out how to make world-class Pinot Noir in Verdigny. He finally determined the right cooper and the right barrel size perfectly adapted to his Pinot and has the art of the process completely dialed in. In 2015, he truly excelled. You can expect beautifully focused and detailed Pinot fruit, freshness, noble tannins, and the ideal structure to give support to the wine with no aggression. It is hard to believe Loire Valley Pinot can be this good.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
