Domaine Reverdy Ducroux is a long established family of winemakers in the village of Verdigny in Sancerre. Laurent is the new generation farming, alongside his father Alain, the seventy-five acres of vineyards spreading over seventy distinct parcels. Laurent can trace back his family in Verdigny and their wine growing activity to fourteen generations as the domaine was created in 1550.
The domaine is medium-sized for Sancerre and covers various type of soils and climats. The main vineyards are located around the winery in Verdigny, and vines in this area are grown on a limestone soil known locally as “terres blanches” which brings the typicity of Sancerre to the sauvignon blanc grapes.
But the domaine also farms other vineyards in the village of Bué, in the famous and rather unique “Chêne Marchand” climat, and various parcels with more flinty soil components.
The flinty parcels are bottled separately under the cuvee Silex (flint in French) as is the Chêne Marchand also bottled under its own vineyard name.
