Or that the geographer at the Court of Catherine de Médicis described the wines of Reuilly as "the best in the Berry region".
Located in the Centre-Val de Loire around Reuilly, in the Indre and Cher regions, the vineyard extends over 253 hectares and flourishes on beautiful sunny slopes of medium slope limestone marl bordered by the Arnon and Théols rivers and on gravel and sand terraces. In this region the climate is temperate with oceanic influence.
These wines are made from three main grape varieties, namely: Sauvignon for white wines, pinot noir and pinot gris for red and rosé wines, although it should be noted that pinot gris tends to disappear, victim of the success of pinot noir.
The tasting phase will highlight the uniqueness of these wines. The reds are ruby with a hint of garnet, the whites are distinguished by their pale gold colour and the rosé wine has a salmon colour. From an olfactory point of view, aromas of red fruits (raspberries, wild strawberries) and blackberries (blackcurrants...) characterize the red Reuilly wines, while the whites have notes of white fruits and lemon and the rosés have peach and apricot aromas. On the palate, the white wines are remarkably full and long, while the red and rosé wines express notes of cherry and peach.
To keep you satisfied, Les Grappes offers you a small menu to enhance the Reuilly wines. As a starter, you can serve a tomato salad with goat cheese and rosé wine or a carpaccio of scallops with white wine. As a main course, a duck in red wine and soy sauce will impress your guests with a red Reuilly. For dessert, let your imagination run wild and above all, don't let anyone tell you that delicacies are a bad thing.
