Bigonneau Reuilly Blanc

Domaine Bigonneau Reuilly Blanc


  • Located on the far eastern border of the Loire Valley, Reuilly shares much in common with its neighbor, Sancerre (except the higher price tag).

Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Elaboration: Pneumatic pressing at a low pressure with elimination of the last press. Fermentation will be completed in a temperature controlled tank at 64° F with regular stirring. It is aged on the lees in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes: Citrus fruits, spices, and a pretty floral touch gives this Reuilly great complexity. The palate reveals depth, balance, and wonderful freshness.




Located between Méreau and Brinay and isolated in the middle of the fields of cereals, Domaine Gerard Bigonneau vinifies both AOC Quincy and Reuilly. This estate, from a family-owned agricultural and wine-growing estate, has been in existence for several generations. At the turn of the 80s, Gerard Bigonneau seized the opportunity to build a vineyard on the slopes of the town of Reuilly. The vineyard covers 16 hectares and makes it possible to turn their passion into a profession that brings pleasure and subtlety.

In 2006, he consolidated his efforts and built a purpose built cellar on La Chagnat and brought in his daughter, Virginie to take control of production. Prior to this, Virginie had been the oenologue at the Cave Brinay, having studied in Dijon as well as having work experience in cellars in Champagne, Burgundy and Alsace. The consolidation to a single cellar and the arrival of Virginie, however, has brought about a real focus to the wines.
