Tasting Notes: The name honors the bees (abeilles) that live in the vineyard. Soft, gentle and beautifully textured, this wine has a hint of zest from the acidity and green-fruit flavors. Ripe with a crisp age, the wine is ready to drink. 

The Domain: Successors of numerous generations of winemakers, two brothers, Jean-Fernand and François, decided in 1991 to clear old vineyard parcels where flint-based soils allow for a full expression of Sauvignon Blanc.

Year after year, the vineyard of the Domaine de Villargeau (Villargeau Estate) grew and diversified with the planting of red grape varieties, Pinot noir and Gamay, to complete the trilogy of the Coteaux du Giennois appellation.

Attentive to the sustainability of its activities, the Domaine de Villargeau is committed to the certified Terra Vitis approach, which guarantees:

*Traceability, from the vine plant to the bottle;

*The growth of beneficial fauna and a reduction in the use of phytosanitary products;

*The collection of its packages; and

*Social responsibility towards its workers.
