Pouilly Fumé vies with its neighbour across the river, Sancerre, to make the most classically defined French Sauvignon Blanc.

Slightly more fruit driven but still a classic, gun-flinty-smoky style of Pouilly Fumé. An engaging nose giving a slight elderflower bouquet with citrus notes; soft fruit, including mango, emerges from a light, clean, minerally palate, rounded off with a hint of lime: fine and elegant with good length and intensity.

This wine will mature up to 2022

Food matching – as aperitif; or with seafood, shellfish, oysters and goats cheese.
