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 Sancerre AOP wines are fermented after manual picking in thermo-regulated (16-20 °) stainless steel tanks for a period of more than 3 weeks. There is no malolactic fermentation and then the wine matures for months on its own lees (sur lie). Ultimately, the wine has a pleasant alcohol percentage of 12.5% with a total acidity: 4.5 g / l
and only 1g/ltr of residual sugars.

In the glass, the wine has bright golden-green reflections. This beautiful Sancerre is as a Sancerre should be: Crispy, fresh and dusty with mineral tones and aromas of citrus fruits. Full and round in the mouth at first, followed by a sensation of crunchiness. A hint of anise lingers. Fantastic acid balance, flavors of citrus, apricot and peach. Delicious with fried fish and tasty fresh salads with chicken or various types of fish.
