Domaine Hippolyte Reverdy, Sauvignon Blanc, Sancerre, Loire Valley, France 2021
Does it get more classic than this? Like Chablis and Muscadet, Sancerre is a quintessential white wine appellation of France, beloved for its famous Kimmeridgian limestone and crisp blancs that sing at apéro hour.
This AOC also happens to be home to half a dozen vignerons named Reverdy. Domaine Hippolyte Reverdy is a family farm that has been making wine for many generations (since the 1600s), producing Sancerres with trademark notes of fresh spring flowers and a zesty, mineral finish.
Since Kermit began to work with Hippolyte — the first Reverdy in this family to bottle, in the 1980s — the wines have been consistently excellent. The current generation, led by Hippolyte's granddaughter Julie Guiard, continues to make sure everything is in exactly the right place in her vines and cellar.
