In the village of Verdigny, Domaine Tabordet was formed from 4.5 hectares of vines in the 1960s by Raymond Tabordet. Later passed onto his two sons, Yvon and Pascal in 1981 the estate began to expand to the appellation of Pouilly-Fumé. Today Marius Tabordet, along with his cousin Gaël operates the domaine under the guidance of Pascal. Marius monitors the vines, performs the vinification, and bring to life the signature of Tabordet within their expanding domaine of 16 hectares in Pouilly-Fume and 5 hectares in Sancerre.
The wine has a pale straw colour with greenish reflections. The palate is well balanced, has a clear acidity and medium body, with refreshing hints of citrus and green apple and a touch of minerality. The L'Autre Rive has a silky texture with a long and elegant finish, a very easy to drink wine. Complex aromas are a combination of citrus, floral and herbal notes. Lemon, grapefruit and lime aromas are felt in the nose, as well as notes of elderflower and subtle smokiness. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
