Domaine Dyckerhoff
Although Christian Dyckerhoff was born in the Berry (his father has a 200 hectare cereal farm), he has only been making wine since 2004, having spent several years living in Alsace which is where he met and married Bénédicte, who originates from Ribeauvillé. Although they operate their business from an ancient grange in the village of Charost (they receive their private clients here as well as raising trout in purpose-build ponds), the couple are members of the Chai de Reuilly and their five hectares of grapes are vinified here.

The vineyards are all to the north of Reuilly and based on the three lieux-dits of ‘Les Conges’, Les Enaudes’ and ‘La Raie’ with the majority of their plantings dedicated to Sauvignon, complimented by one hectare of Pinot Noir and half a hectare of Pinot Gris. The vines are between three and twenty years old. 

There is a single wine made from each of the three varieties, with examples from the 2009 vintage (tasted at the Chai de Reuilly in May 2010) all being very good ambassadors for the appellation.
