This is a top 10 Touraine (according to the Vins de France guide) that`s light and fresh. The acidity is well balanced, and the gooseberry, pear and lychee flavours are not overly pronounced. The wine shows a slight hint of minerality on the finish. Very subtle Sauvignon Blanc.

Dominique Barbou

Domaine des Corbillières has been in the Barbou family since the early 20th century. The area of Touraine is famous for Sauvignon Blanc and is close to Sancerre, also famous for Sauvignon Blanc but at much higher prices! In fact Robert Parker has credited Dominique and Veronique Barbou with producing "some of the consistently finest, not to mention best value, Sauvignon Blancs on the planet". Being a family owned and run vineyard, all hands are required on deck at harvest and bottling time and, on this visit, the young son was spending his school mid-term break on bottling duty with his father! All farming practices at Domaine des Corbillieres are organic. When you have excellent terroir like this, you don't want to mess around with it.
