Deep salmon pink colour with a fragrant aroma of

Producer Note
Domaine de la Villaudière is owned by Jean-Marie Reverdy together with his son
Guillaume. Handed down through several generations, this 15 hectare family estate
overlooks the pretty village of Verdigny. The unique location offers stunning views of the
famous Sancerre hill and its vineyards. Patience, perseverance and precision are the
bywords of all those involved in Domaine de la Villaudière. From the management of
the vineyards to the production of the wines, the family continues to build on the work
begun by the previous generations, which gives their wines a captivating blend of
authenticity and modernity.
Vintage
The winter of 2019/2020 was the warmest since the turn of this century, bringing with it
an abundance of rain. This sparked the vine’s growth cycle and flowering took place
two weeks earlier than average. The summer was warm and dry, with several heatwaves, which allowed the vines to flourish, the grapes to mature and concentrated the
flavours in the berries. The natural water reserves prevented any hydric stress. The 2020
harvest has resulted in elegant wines with excellent fruit concentration.
Vineyard
The vines are cultivated, using sustainable agricultural methods. The vineyard is certified
HVE3 which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers,
including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use
and water resource management. The vines selected for the wine are approximately
twenty years old. Planted with an easterly exposure, ripening is slow and gradual. The
vines are partially thinned in July to maintain good health throughout the growing cycle
and obtain good maturity. 80% of the grapes are grown on a limestone terroir locally
referred to as Caillottes.
Winemaking
This rosé was produced using two methods. 60% of the wine came from direct pressing
and 40% from bled juice. The bled juice was drawn off after a light maceration to
obtain the desired salmon colour. After settling for 12 to 24 hours, the must was placed
in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks, where fermentation took place at
between 15 and 20° C. At the end of fermentation, the wine was racked to remove the
first lees. To preserve the freshness, bottling was carried out early in the year after
clarification and stabilisation.
Tasting Note
This salmon pink wine has a powerful bouquet that combines red berry fragrances of
strawberry, cherry and redcurrant, with spicy nuances. Beautifully balanced freshness
and smoothness are complemented by a lovely full character. The floral and fruity
aromas nicely line the palate and the finish is light and long.
