"Gorgeously green and grassy, with notes of citrus and punchy tropical fruit flavours, such as nectarine with plenty of balancing acidity. Organic to boot."
Katherine Donnelly
Irish Independent.

Best Value White, Decanter May 2009

This is built on concentrated elderflower and rhubarb cordial notes, with a nice underbelly of minerality and brisk acidity.
A breezy, uplifting and refreshing wine. Drink now."

Winemaker

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."
