On the strength of their 2008 Sancerre Les Coutes Nicolas Reverdy's widow Sophie and son Pascal are not letting family tragedy or challenging weather interfere with rendering exceptional examples of their appellation... On the strength of their 2008 Sancerre Les Coutes Nicolas Reverdy's widow Sophie and son Pascal are not letting family tragedy or challenging weather interfere with rendering exceptional examples of their appellation. Grapefruit lime mint sage wood smoke and crushed stone in the nose lead to a palate of exuberant brightness delicacy (at 12.6% - natural - alcohol) yet oily richness and boasting a depth of chalk salt iodine and shellfish-like nuances that simply has to be tasted to be believed. If you don't want to be left with a mouthful of mineral flavors you can't wash out then stay clear of this wine (and leave it for the rest of us)! Like other recent Reverdy bottlings done for the United States this was neither cold-stabilized nor filtered. You can count on its being worth following for at least the next 3-4 years.
