Nestled in the Loire Valley, Quincy is the first appellation from the Centre-Loire to obtain the AOC status.
J. de Villebois has carefully selected the best Sauvignon Blanc grapes to produce this aromatic and delicate wine with exotic and mineral notes.
This wine is available in France from 15,90 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux trésors de Bacchus
The limestone, present on this soil, transfer its incredible potential to the vines. In order to preserve the exceptional character of this terroir, we practice sustainable soil management all year long.
The grapes are quickly transported to the winery to minimize skin contact before gentle pressing into a pneumatic press. The grape juices are fermented traditionally in stainless steel tanks during 7 to 15 days.
The newly made wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks during at least 6 months. It is then blended and bottled in the spring following the harvest.
Our Quincy is a perfect match with fish dishes and goatcheeses.
Silver yellow color.
A powerful nose, dominated by blackcurrant, lemon and hawthorn notes.
On the palate, this wine is intense and has minerality. Ripe Citruses flavors are supported by a long lasting and delicate acidity.
