Sauvignon Blanc

France

The recently created Vin de France appellation is a fantastic opportunity for J. de Villebois to work with multiple terroirs. Made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on the Atlantic Coast and in the Loire Valley, our wine is stunning. Thanks to J. de Villebois’ expertise with the Sauvignon Blanc grape in the Loire Valley, we’ve been able to deliver a wine both “haut de gamme” AND affordable!

This wine is available in France from 8,20 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux trésors de Bacchus

VINEYARD

Made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in the Loire Valley and on the Atlantic Coast.

WINEMAKING

The grapes are machine-picked at night to preserve the fruit flavors. Immediately after picking the grapes are gently pressed and the juice is fermented traditionally in tanks during 15 to 21 days.

AGEING

To preserve its fermentation flavors, the newly made wine is aged in stainless steel tanks, on its fine lees during 6 months. It is bottled in the spring following the harvest.

FOOD PAIRING

Great to enjoy with cold meats, seafood and (goat) cheeses.

Tasting notes

COLOR

Green-yellow color.

NOSE

With a bouquet of ripe fruit aromas on the nose.

PALATE

A big and smooth structure. An harmonious blend reminiscent of the taste of ripe Sauvignon Blanc berries. A savory Sauvignon blanc de France grown on carefully selected terroirs.
