Villargeau Coteaux du Giennois Blanc 09 2011

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a wine merchant [ www.htfwines.co.uk for £12 ] .Coteaux du Giennois is an AOC for red,rose and white wines from around the town of Gien about 40 miles upstream from Orleans on the river Loire and 80 miles south of Paris.The reds are made from gamay and pinot noir and the whites from sauvignon blanc.There are only 90 hectares of sauvignon blanc in the entire appellation and very little is exported outside France so this little known AOC lives in the shadow of its better known neighbours of Sancerre and Poilly-Fume.Domaine de Villargeau [ www.domaine-villargeau.fr ] is a family concern owned by Jean Fernand Thibault.I started my bottle last night as an accompaniment to my fish supper and I enjoyed it very much.It is refreshing,very drinkable and full of fruit and flavour;think gooseberries and lime;it is that acidic.In short,this is a lovely wine,sauvignon blanc at its best,and I am begining to reget buying only one bottle..
