About the wine

Virgile's cracking little Sauvignon slips down far too easily
  • Virgile's wines are in high demand and it's easy to see why with wines such as this cracking little Sauvignon that makes New Zealand versions look brash and brutish.
  • Its subtle soft fruit flavours, all fresh apple and baked gooseberry with a slightly herbal edge slip down far too easily, making possession of a whole case a dangerous prospect.
  • Try it with a big bowl of fat, juicy mussels - it really doesn't get much better.

Best before
Drink now to 2020

Serving advice
Serve chilled at 10-12°C

Food match
I would recommend to pair this wine with seafood or grilled fish. It's very good with mixed salad and vegetarian food like tofu with mint and garlic. I love it by its own just to start the evening!

Meet the winemaker - Virgile Joly

  • Virgile Joly is almost annoyingly perfect. He's ultra organic, with the certificates to prove it. Dashingly good looking, with a beautiful wife (who fell in love with him after one harvest). Stupidly talented with wine, he has glowing reviews from the doyenne of wine writing, Jancis Robinson.
  • Plus he's not afraid of hard work. He bottled his first vintage himself. 3,000 bottles, Virgile and a funnel. Now that's dedication!
  • 10 years later, he's producing some of the Languedoc's most sought after wines and we're using Angel funding to help him expand his winery and go on to even greater things. Plus his surname brings a smile to our face every time we see it - what's not to like!
