The Côte de Gien is situated just to the north of Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire.

 

In 1991, the Thibault family decided to create the “Domaine de Villargeau” on land facing south-southwest and enjoying the greatest amount of sunshine. Two brothers, Fernand and Jean-François Thibault, cleared hillsides abandoned since the phylloxera crisis of the mid nineteen century in order to plant vines. In 2000, they were joined by one of their sons, Marc, returning to the area armed with his apprenticeship and experience in viticulture and oenology.

 

Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc the wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and then aged on its lees, again in steel, before bottling.

 

Dry, crisp and refreshing, the wine is a slightly lighter and softer style of Sauvignon than that produced in Sancerre and Pouilly. Excellent wine and great value.
