J. de Villebois Sauvignon Blanc 2021

FranceThis family estate owns vineyards in the Upper and Central Loire. Descending from an old French family that is established in the Netherlands since the 19th century, (where the V became a W) Joost and Miguela de Willebois settled in Touraine with their 4 sons in 1996. They since hired Patrice Merceron and Alberto Tonetto to oversee the estate. This entry Savvy comes from vineyards from the coast across the valley. After a stainless ferment, this remained on lees for 3 months prior to bottling. Verbena, gooseberry, crunchy green apple streak across the medium palate, with lemon peel tightening, and a fine lees pad slicking the bottom, finishing with a dash of white pepper. Fresh, bright, punchy, and reach for enjoying now.Tasted: 13 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
