When you think of the Loire Valley, you think of elegant, sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc. Here we have a delightful, authentic Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc made by a family with a very long history that began in France. Owner/CEO Joost van der Does de Willebois' has such a great love for France and the illustrious Loire Valley. Although born in the Netherlands, Joost not only worked for many years in various parts of France, but he also is of French descent. His family name ‘de Willebois’ is originally French. The de Villebois family history dates back 900 years when his ancestors were living in France. In 1630, Louys de Villebois, the eldest son of  Jean de Villebois, inherited a family estate in the northern part of France and settled there. Joost is a descendant of him. This label, J. de Villebois, is a tribute to his ancestor. Over time the single V of Villebois transformed into a double V or W so the name became Willebois. The journey has now gone full circle as the family is back in France with Villebois Wines as a premier Loire Sauvignon Blanc Specialist. Joost's passion for the France’s culture, history and wines is fully expressed in this wine venture.

Look for a pale yellow color with some green glints. Intense gooseberry, white flower and citrus notes on the nose lead to more of the same in the mouth. The palate bursts with flavor and yet is perfectly delicate, thirst quenching a joy to drink. The fruit is balanced out by a refreshing acidity and underlying mineral component. Simply delicious.

Think of her as a 'Baby Sancerre'.... she is made from younger vines (less than 20 years old), which are situated in Touraine along the Loire river banks with its clay and flint soils.  Great to drink as apéritif, fantastic with goat cheeses and white fish. Excellent with mussels. Only 12% alcohol makes her beautiful for long days with friends and family.

This lightly structured, poised wine is attractively textured and full of ripe citrus and apple acidity. Freshness is enhanced by the final crispness. Drink now.
