  • Classic Pouilly Fume has a complex nose of blackcurrants, boxwood, and subtle hints of tarragon, followed by lemon and exotic fruits all underpinned by minerality. The palate is tangy and fresh with a lovely richness echoing the fruit flavours found on the nose. Very elegant with a long, complex finish. Producing classically styled, elegant wines using an organic approach. The estate is sustainably farmed and holds the HVE certification.

The grapes were carefully selected and gently crushed, and each press wine was vinified separately. A long, slow fermentation took place at low temperatures in stainless steel vats to retain the fruit's purity and the terroir's nuances. The intervention was kept to a minimum. The wine was matured on its fine lees until the following spring when the vats were blended.

Winery

The vineyard is located in Tracy-sur-Loire, on the slopes overlooking the Loire River. This wine is produced from high-density vines of 17,000 vines per hectare; the standard density for the appellation is 7,000 vines per hectare. More competition between the vines forces the roots to dig deeper to draw reserves from the soil. The influence of the terroir is increased, vigour is controlled, and the plants are more robust. The specific pruning, de-budding and leaf thinning result from rigorous research and intensive work on the vines. The vegetation is less dense and less vulnerable to disease, and each plant bears a maximum of two or three bunches (the average in the appellation is 10 to 12 bunches). The vines are planted with a south-westerly orientation to provide the maximum exposure to the sun. The clayey flint soil imparts an assertive character to the wines; they are powerful and distinct, while the calcareous Kimmeridgian subsoil produces rich, elegant wines with complex aromas. The vineyard is managed using sustainable practices, and the ecological system is meticulously considered. The grapes are hand-harvested in several triages to ensure the optimal maturity of the berries.
