2016 Sancerre Blanc "Les Coutes" (Reverdy, Pascal & Nicolas)
Pascal & Nicolas Reverdy, Sancerre "Les Coutes", Loire Valley, France 2016100% Sauvignon Blanc LEMON JUICE & GRAPEFRUIT ZEST, PRISTINE CHALKINESS If you’re anything like us, you’re always looking for a “GOOD SANCERRE,” relentlessly shouting the phrase as if into an omnipresent search engine that doesn’t yet exist. This offering from the Reverdy family (well, one of several Reverdy families in this corner of the Loire Valley, actually) stands out through its restraint and clarity. Pristine in both appearance and aroma, the “Les Coutes” Cuvée restrainedly represents the region’s potential for minerally mettle and herbacious elegance, eschewing the more linear, grapefruit-dominated stylings of countless contemporary examples. Serving Suggestion: Filleted dover sole (or flounder) w/ butter, lemon zest, shallots, & dill. Bagels w/ smoked salmon, cream cheese, & capers. Goat cheeses.
