DOMAINE DE LA VILAUDIERE
Handed down through several generations, this 15-hectare family estate is located in the charming village of Verdigny, just a stone's throw away from Chavignol. This unique location offers stunning views of the famous Sancerre hill and its vineyards. The vines are over 30-year-old and are grown on two distinct type of soils that give the wine its balance. A mix of clay and limestone called “Terres Blanches” provides complexity and richness, while the “Caillottes”, a dryer blend of gravel and limestone, delivers floral and fruit aromas along with a crisp, refreshing acidity. Catherine and Jean-Marie REVERDY have been practicing sustainable viticulture for over 20 years.
The vineyard extends over 30 hectares, 22 of which are planted with AOC (Controlled Designation of Origin) vines.
Thanks to the different grape varieties and optimum growing conditions of the plots, we are able to offer a full and varied wine range across 2 Controlled Designation of Origin (AOC) areas, Valençay and Touraine.
Chantal and Patrick Gibault take an environmentally-friendly approach to tending their vines in Meusnes. The vineyard has been awarded Terra Vitis environmental certification.
THE WINE REGION
Flinty clays make up the bulk of the soils, infusing our wines with a delightful mineral note. Our region is bathed in a continental climate under oceanic influence, so the vines are able to thrive amidst mild spring temperatures, plentiful summer sunshine and reasonable rainfall all year round.
