Jancis Robinson over Villebois Wijnen
8 Sep 2011 by Jancis Robinson
Villebois, Brut NV Crémant de Loire 15.5 Drink 2011-2012
Joost de Villebois. Very clean and fresh. Aged and really very clean – just slightly chewy. Not a bad price and nice clean packaging.
Villebois, Petit Villebois 2010 Vin de Pays du Val de Loire 15 Drink 2011
Made by Joost De Villebois at La Chardoise. Very light, dry nose. Pretty hard work but no excess sweetness. 12%
Villebois Sauvignon Blanc 2010 16 Drink 2011
From Joost De Villebois' own vineyards, south of Blois on the banks of the Cher. Much more obviously expressive than the Petit Villebois. Really racy and lively. Good balance. GV at cashback price. Appetising. Also sold in Benelux. 12%
Villebois 2010 Sancerre 15.5 Drink 2011
From three controlled vineyards. Open and regular and a bit galumphing – not the finesse and expression of the Sauvignon Blanc 12.5%
Villebois 2010 Pouilly-Fumé 16 Drink 2011-2012
From controlled vineyards. Firm, scented, much more convincing on the nose than the Sancerre. Juicy, green fruited, though quite open. 12.5%
Villebois, Rosé 2010 Vin de Pays du Val de Loire 15 Drink 2011
Cabernet Franc and Gamay. Bit sweet and sticky. 13.5%
