This cuvee is made from grapes grown on the western soils of the Sancerre vineyard, where the Kimmeridgian soils are identified as the calcareous marls of Saint Doulchard and the marls of Buzanais. The soils are made of deep clay and calcareous flat stones on the surface, hence the name Les Terres Blanches, which translates as white earth as the stones cover the topsoil and give the impression of being a white land. These soils produce generous long lasting wines that fully reveal their potential with time. The grapes come from plots where the vine age is over 25-years old. In order to preserve the character of this specific terroir, the soil is managed sustainably in order to preserve the soil biodiversity and allow for the purest expression of these special soils

This family-owned winery is the venture of Joost and Miguela de Willebois, who are descendants of an old French family, established in the Netherlands in the 19th century (where the V became a W). Passionate about French culture and the Loire Valley, Joost and Miguela settled in Touraine in 1996, after being enchanted by Loire Sauvignon Blanc. They cultivate a range of terroirs across appellations within the Loire Valley, combining modern techniques, innovation and experimentation, with respect for the soils and the terroir. They fully believe that by being as close to nature as possible, they can capture the soul of the land. Patrice Merceron, winemaker and agricultural engineer, joined in 2014 and guides a team of dedicated winegrowers and winemakers to produce stunning Sauvignon Blanc wines, which reflect the nuances of the Loire Valley.
