When looking for the best easy sippin’ wines, it’s hard to look past France’s Loire Valley. Home to Sancerre, Pouilly Fume, Touraine, Menetou-Salon and Quincy, the Loire is incredibly rich with great Sauvignon Blanc regions. Luckily for us, today’s wine features a little bit of everything.
Similar to the Wagner Family and Caymus in California, Villebois’ Dutch/French owner has vineyards in all of Loire’s desirable Sauvignon Blanc areas, with unprecedented access and resources available to make world class Sauvignon. Today’s wine is a rarity that includes grapes from right in the middle of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume, with the slight additions of Menetou-Salon and Touraine.
The resulting wine is like a Baby Sancerre for less than half the price– but a fruity, more vibrant version of Sauvignon– one that is incredibly, light, fresh and delicious and perfect for some appetizers, pool-side sipping or better yet a combination of the two.
The best part is the price. Villebois has a full portfolio of single vineyard wines from Sancerre, as well as bottling Pouilly Fume, Menetou-Salon and Touraine AVA wines. But this is the only wine in the portfolio that has a little slice of everything. As such it’s labeled as a Vin de France — an overarching region known for producing great bargains, though none as good as this one today.
