The VILLEBOIS POUILLY FUMÉ’s complexity originates from the various Pouilly-Fumé Terroirs.
Like nowhere in the world, the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety reveals its full potential thanks to the diverse terroirs of Pouilly. Thanks to a rigorous work in the vineyard and the winery, Villebois encapsulates the spirit of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation.
The sauvignon blanc grapes are grown on the main Pouilly Fumé terroirs : Villiers and Barrois Limestones, Marls with oyster shells, Clayey-flint soils.
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.
Delicious on its own or as an apéritif. Goes very well with oysters and lobster, rich seafood dishes and goatcheeses (Crottin de Chavignol, Sainte Maure de Touraine).
Yellow-green pale color.
The subtle nose reveals a combination of smoky and ripe fruit flavors.
The palate is dominated by the flavors o f candied p ineapple, p each a nd m ango. A n elegant acidity supporting the typical “smoky” flavors of Pouilly Fumé completes this great Pouilly-Fumé.
