Run by Pascal and Marie-Laure together with their son Marius, Domaine Tabordet is
a 19 hectare estate, including five hectares in Sancerre and 14 in Pouilly-Fumé. The
domain is very much a family business, run in a traditional spirit, but using the latest
winemaking technology. The vineyards are managed with the utmost respect for the
sustainability and biodiversity. The resulting wines are a true reflection of the diverse
terroirs which make up their estate showing characteristic flinty flavours, with good
weight and a full body.
2016 was a complicated and challenging vintage in the Loire Valley. Frost damage
in April affected Domaine Tabordet’s vines in Pouilly Fumé resulting in a large part of
the vineyard being badly damaged, however the vineyard in Sancerre was not
affected. A rainy spring meant it was necessary to be vigilant in the vineyard.
Fortunately warm, sunny weather from July onwards and good conditions
throughout the harvest resulted in healthy grapes with beautiful balance and vibrant
The vineyard is situated in the heart of the Pouilly Fumé appellation on the right bank
of the Loire River. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method. The vineyard
is carefully cultivated throughout the year with debudding of the vines, tilling of the
soil to reduce the need for weed killers and certain parcels are left with grass cover
to limit the vigour of the vines. Deleafing takes place at the end of June. The soil in
the vineyard is made up of Kimmeridgian marl, which is a chalky clay, flint and
pebbly limestone, known locally as "caillottes". The soil imparts the distinctive mineral
and flinty characteristics to the wine. The harvest takes place between mid-
September and mid-October when the grapes have reached optimal maturity and
the vines are machine harvested in order to retain the freshness and aromatics in the
The grapes were very gently pressed by a pneumatic press, to avoid any stalky
flavours. The juice was then left to settle so it was as clear as possible, racked and
then fermented in temperature controlled tanks with the use of neutral yeasts. The
wine was aged for six months on its lees, prior to being bottled.
A classic Pouilly Fumé showing minerality complemented by notes of exotic fruits,

A great apéritif which is also delicious with fish and seafood.
