Sancerre Blanc

Sancerre Blanc AOP

The VILLEBOIS SANCERRE BLANC is a cuvée made from the famous Sancerre Terroirs.

It has an intense bouquet and a flavorful palate, it burst with lots of ripe fruits flavors and vegetal aromas. A new world style Sancerre, yet true to its unique Terroirs.

VINEYARD

The grapes are grown on the famous hilly slopes composing the 3 Terroirs of Sancerre : Caillottes (stones and clay), Terres Blanches (clay) and Silex (flints).

WINEMAKING PROCESS

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.

AGEING

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.

FOOD PAIRING

Great to enjoy as an apéritif. Goes very well with oysters or lobster but excellent with goatcheeses from the Loire Valley. (Crottin de Chavignol, Selles sur Cher, Sainte Maure de Touraine)

Tasting notes
