The Dupuy vineyards are located in Verdigny in the Loire Valley in Northern France. The plots are mainly located in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Touraine. The wine company's main motivation and passion is the Sauvignon Blanc grape, which uses the most advanced techniques to make a wine that is as pure and authentic as possible. The company now also makes very nice wines with Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir.

The estate and wine empire have been owned by Miguela and Joost Willebois since 2004. Dutchman Joost Willebois has French roots, his French ancestors had the name Villebois, which later became Willebois. When Miguela and Joost bought a wine estate in Verdigny in 2004, they renamed it Villebois.

Their wines under the name Charles Dupuy are a tribute to Charles Etienne Dupuy, who in 1920 donated his 80 hectares of land to the then wine estate.

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for the Charles Dupuy Pouilly-Fumé AOP wines come from a vineyard of only 3 HA. They are, of course, picked by hand and then transported to the winery as quickly as possible - there they are cooled if necessary and then very lightly pressed after which the must is traditionally fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 15 days at a very low temperature. So 'quiet' fermentation ensures a great complete typical Pouilly-Fumé with little residual sugar and good acidity and of course the typical "smoky" flavors of Pouilly Fumé. In the glass the wine has a yellow-green pale color with subtle notes of smoky and ripe fruit flavors in the nose. The taste is dominated by candied pineapple, peach and mango aromas and a very elegant acidity. This is a delicious glass that goes perfectly with oysters and lobster, rich fish dishes and goat cheese.

Vineyard for 2020 Charles Dupuy Les Rabichottes Pouilly-Fumé

De wijngaarden van Dupuy zijn gelegen in Verdigny in de Loirevallei in Noord-Frankrijk. De percelen liggen voornamelijk in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé en Touraine. Grote drijfveer en passie van het wijnbedrijf is de druif Sauvignon Blanc, waarmee met gebruik van de meest geavanceerde technieken een zo puur en authentiek mogelijke wijn gemaakt wordt. Inmiddels maakt het bedrijf ook erg mooie wijnen met Chenin Blanc en Pinot Noir.

Het landgoed en het wijnimperium zijn sinds 2004 in bezit van Miguela en Joost Willebois. Nederlander Joost Willebois heeft Franse wortels, zijn Franse voorouders hadden de naam Villebois, die later Willebois werd. Toen Miguela en Joost in 2004 een wijndomein in Verdigny kochten, doopten ze het Villebois.

Hun wijnen onder de naam Charles Dupuy zijn een hommage aan Charles Etienne Dupuy, die in 1920 zijn 80 hectare grond doneerde aan het toenmalige wijndomein.
