The Cordier family in Reuilly produce a superb Sauvignon Blanc that we have shipped in every vintage over 4 decades. It is quite taut and nervy with notes of elderflowers and nettles and a fine minerally finish. Oysters are a traditional accompaniment but it goes well with goat's cheese and asparagus. They also make a soupçon of pale 'onion-skin' coloured Pinot Gris rosé that is unfailingly reliable with subtle scents of redcurrants and rosehips and a crisp, dry palate of summer berries.
Reuilly is the most westerly of the Central Vineyard AOCs, all of which (Sancerre, Pouilly Fumé, Menetou Salon and Quincy) specialize in Sauvignon. Reuilly is the smallest with a tiny 130 hectares in production and the least well-known, but should not be overlooked.
