Domaine de Villargeau Coteaux du Giennois Blanc 2020. The small appellation of Côteaux de Giennois is often overlooked by its world-famous neighbours, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. But you’ll find equally exceptional Sauvignon Blanc here, with Domaine de Villargeau offering a prime example. The winery is very much a family affair, led by brothers Jean-Fernand and François Thibault. Their winemaking journey began in 1991 with the discovery of some abandoned southwest-facing vineyards. Decades on, Jean-Fernand’s sons and nephew now make up the team, having gained a wealth of winemaking experience from around the world, ranging from South America to neighbouring Sancerre. This Sauvignon has previously received high praise from Decanter, and as of the 2022 vintage, the winery will be officially certified as organic. It’s lively and aromatic, with notes of white peach, pear and a touch of mint. Expect flavours of orange zest and orchard fruit, plus a streak of chalky minerality reminiscent of Pouilly-Fumé. Plenty of freshness makes it a wonderful match for seafood dishes..
