Domaine Roger Neveu

France

The estate is a family property whose history can be traced back to the 12th century. It is located in the district of Verdigny, the heart of the Sancerre area. The region’s “terroirs” with its unique combination of grosses terres (mixture of clay and limestone), les Caillottes (small stones over a limestone subsoil), and clayey earth is renowned wordwide.

The domaine is currently operated by the brothers Jean-Philippe and Eric Neveu with their sons Florent and Baptiste being groomed to eventually take over the family estate to ensure the continuity of the long family tradition. Their vineyards are planted with Sauvignon Blanc (75%) and Pinot Noir (24% for red wine and 1% for rosé wine production).

A very complex expression of Sauvignon Blanc that calls for special occasions.

Enjoy with seafood, shellfish, salmon in puff pastry and grilled white meats. At a more matured stage, it also pairs well with foie gras.
