2019 Sancerre Terre de Maimbray
With his brother Nicolas’ untimely death, Pascal Reverdy decided to carry on the work they'd started together – helped by Nicolas’ widow Sophie and his own wife Nathalie. in the tiny hamlet of Maimbray, Pascale works his 14 ha of vineyards manually and organically, without weed killers or industrial fertilisers, to produce incredible Sancerre that sings of place and purity. Grapes are hand picked and hand sorted, before being vinified separately, parcel by parcel, matured in stainless steel or conical oak vats and bottled with little to no filtration.
Pascal's 2018 Terre de Maimbray is a clean, classic Sancerre at an insane price. Lime, green apple and fresh herbs are underpinned by a gentle bed of acid fruits, grassy notes and wet stone, spliced by vigorous acidity and chalky minerality. Energy for days.
