J. de Villebois, Quincy, Loire Valley, France, 2021
Overview of the Wine
The quest to create the best Sauvignon Blanc through innovation and experimentation while embracing and respecting the values and spirit of the appellation is the philosophy of Villebois in a nutshell. The modernist approach discards dogmas and beliefs and is a guarantee of quality, a seal of confidence without ever replacing the notion of terroir and the intrinsic identity of the appellations. The spirit of Villebois is the ability to combine the most modern techniques with the noblest soils, only to question everything the following year. This is a permanent, exciting and fascinating quest…with the only gauge being the ability to capture you with every glass! Every sip tells a story.
Every day the team at Domaine J. de Villebois is grateful for the work carried out by our ancestors to protect the peculiarities of the terroir through the creation of the protected designation of origin system (Appellation d’Origine Protegée). We are convinced that the mastery of a terroir can only be fully understood and explored by people who live in harmony with their environment. Each of our vineyards is cultivated with passion by a winemaker and a team who observes, lives and breathes the interaction between the soils and the floral diversity.

91 Points - Ian Blackburn
Grown in pink limestone, sand and silex - this producers QUINCY has a pretty purfumed nose, with pink grapefruit, wild flowers, and a gentle plushness. Light, lean, and very enjoyable - you might need two bottles instead of just one. Pair with fish and you will come back for more. Color 14/15 - youthful, Aroma 24/25 - a perfume splender! Body 21/25 - very daft and lean, Overall 32/35 - 91 points, very enjoyable - Ian Blackburn
