Hippolyte Reverdy’s family has been making wine in the village of Verdigny, a commune of Sancerre in the eastern Loire, for many generations—perhaps as far back as 1600. Traditional in nature, the farm was planted to multiple crops, and the Reverdys raised goats and made small quantities of wine from their own vines for local consumption. It was not until the end of World War II that Hippolyte began increasing his Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir production, selling it to accommodate increasing demands from Paris. Hippolyte and his three sons began bottling small quantities under their own label, although the lion’s share of the grapes was still being sold off to the local cave coopérative. Michel joined his father and brothers in 1971, shortly after finishing high school. Kermit Lynch began working with the domaine for the first time in 1983.

Today, Michel farms fourteen hectares of vineyards on his own. Michel is a true farmer, working seven days a week, and wanting nothing more and nothing less. This Sancerre Rose is made of 100% Pinot Noir from vines averaging 30 years in age, planted in soils composed of siliceous clay and gravelly limestone. The vineyards are farmed with sustainable methods, and the wine is made in extremely small quantities.
