SAS Dyckerhoff: Reuilly, France
Christian and Benedicte Dyckerhoff have been making wine since 2004 and run their small domain of 6 hectares in the countryside west of Bourges, about an hour west of Sancerre. While it is less expensive than Sancerre, many would argue that the wines are of equal quality. It benefits from a very high limestone content in the soil, and though hilly, the altitude is lower than Sancerre. Harvests are often a week or two earlier in Reuilly than Sancerre.
Three grapes are grown: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris for Vin Gris (not shown below) and Pinot noir for rose blends and red, though the Sauvignon Blanc is grown the most.
2016 Sauvignon Blanc
The Robin is a symbol of finesse and curiosity, and this wine reflects an elegant approach to life. This light wine is best tasted soon after purchase in order to take advantage of its fresh flavour. Best served at 11 degrees with fish, dishes with sauce, and cheese.
2016 Petit Gris
This unique Rosé made from Pinot Gris is a crisp and refreshing beverage on a summer's day. With exotic tropical lychee notes and hints of black currant, this fruit-filled wine will keep you coming back for more.
2015 Pinot Noir
Light and fruity with red fruit aromas, this wine perfectly accompanies white meats and full-bodied cheeses. The red robin symbolizes the finesse, curiosity, and elegance found in this wine, which is best served between 12 and 14 degrees.
