Domaine Roger Neveu ‘Cóte des Embouffants’ Sancerre 2020/21. The Neveu family’s roots in the Loire run deep. Neveus have been recorded in the village of Verdigny since the twelfth century. That’s right in the heart of Sancerre – where their name is now a byword for quality. And like the Neveus, the vineyard this wine comes from is steeped in history. Côtes des Embouffants was singled out by Abbot Poupart in his 1777 history of Sancerre.
