Sauvignon Blanc – PRESTIGE

Touraine AOP

The first cuvée created by Villebois in 2004 in its old vines version!

An important aromatic intensity coupled with a powerful expression of the terroir does not leave insensible! This powerful profile counterbalances an appreciable finesse and precision.

VINEYARD

Produced on the Cher river banks on “clay with flints soils” and in the Sologne Viticole on “Clay and Sand soils’.

WINEMAKING PROCESS

The grapes are machine-picked, pressed into a pneumatic press after a 12 hours skin-contact maceration. The grape juices are fermented traditionally in tanks for 7 to 15 days.

AGEING

The newly made wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks during 6 months. It is then blended and bottled in the spring following the harvest.

FOOD PAIRING

Excellent as an aperitif, with white meats or oriental dishes.

Tasting notes

COLOR

Delicate and deep green-yellow color.

NOSE

A subtle bouquet of vegetal aromas on the nose.

PALATE

A tense and mineral structure. An harmonious blend reminiscent of the taste of ripe Sauvignon Blanc grapes. It has minerality and a great length, it is a great example of a great Sauvignon blanc de Touraine grown on “flinty soils” and harvested at perfect maturity.
