Domaine de la Villaudiere Sancerre Rouge 2017

The Domaine de la Villaudiere Sancerre Rouge ia a medium bodied red with delicate Pinot Noir strawberry and cranberry tones with hints of cloves through to a fresh and balanced finish.

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 - In 2016 spring frosts caused significant crop loss in the Loire Valley. Fortunately warm, sunny weather from July onwards and good conditions throughout the harvest period resulted in healthy grapes with beautiful balance and vibrant fruit flavours.

Vineyard - The vines are cultivated according to “la lutte rainsonnée', using sustainable agricultural methods and reducing the amount of chemicals, in order to respect the land and its environment. The Pinot Noir vines are 40 years old and are reaching the pinnacle of their quality potential. Half of the vineyard is made up of a clay-limestone soil locally referred to as "Terres Blanches", which translates as white soils, while the remaining half is a drier, stony limestone soil called "Caillotes", which incorporates small pebbles. The vines undergo debudding and the leaves are thinned during the summer months.

Winemaking - Following a rigorous sorting process, the grapes underwent a cold maceration in stainless steel which lasted for a few days. During the maceration the cap was deliberately kept submerged, this technique resulted in a light, fruity wine. The grapes were then pressed, followed by a temperature controlled fermentation and then malolactic fermentation. The wine spent several months' ageing on the lees in stainless steel tanks, before being stabilised and clarified prior to bottling.

Tasting Note - This wine opens with a delectable blend of ripe blackcurrant, blackberry fruits combined with notes of wild red fruits. Supple with a silky texture and fine, maturing tannins through to an elegant finish.

Serving Suggestion - This red Sancerre is a perfect match with poultry, roast pork dishes, game or goat's cheese.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
