Producer Note
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
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.


Vintage
The winter was mild, with cold spells in January. Spring was marked by frost, which
affected some vines. The summer warmed up and flowering took place under good
weather conditions. The summer remained warm and was very dry; as a result the
vines stared to get depleted of water. Thankfully a significant storm took place at the
end of July, bringing beneficial rainwater. Harvest took place early, starting on 18th
September, with grapes having reached good maturity levels and excellent quality.


Vineyard
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 herbicides; and certain parcels are left with grass cover to
limit the vigour of the vines. Canopy management such as deleafing takes place at
the end of June. The soil in the vineyard is made up of Kimmeridgian marl, which is a
chalky clay; 'Caillottes' a local chalky limestone and ‘Silex’ a clay with flint
throughout. The harvest takes place between mid-September and mid-October
when the grapes have reached optimal maturity.


Winemaking
The wine was made with as little intervention as possible, in order to express the
characteristics of the grapes and the terroir. The grapes were carefully selected and
gently pressed to avoid crushing. The must was transported by gravity into vats,
where it was cooled to 10°C and clarified. Fermentation took place in old 600 litre
barriques of two to five years. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was aged
in the barriques for 10 to 12 months, imparting subtle oak characteristics and
structure. The wine was gently filtered prior to being bottled.


Tasting Note
A barrel-fermented Pouilly Fumé with good fruit concentration, characteristic flinty
notes and a subtle touch of vanilla. The textured palate is beautifully balanced and
has a lovely mineral freshness on the long, persistent finish.
