DESCRIPTION

VIVINO 4.0 RATING

Pouilly-Fumé is notably one of France’s most famous white wines (and white wine regions). On the right bank of the Loire River, just across the river from Sancerre, Sauvignon Blanc is in its purest form, aromatic and lively with a spark of minerality. Grown on limestone and clay soils, the Sauvignon Blanc of Pouilly-Fumé has a reputation for offering gunflint or smoky notes. In fact, the French word “fumé” translates to “smoke.”

After harvest, the grape bunches are delicately pressed, and allowed to settle before a natural fermentation. The wine is then left to mature on the lees for several months, producing a beautiful perfume and a silky texture.

TASTING NOTES

Flinty with notes of gooseberry and white flowers on the nose. Succulent citrus mixed with a bright freshness on the palate. The perfect aperitif served alongside fresh seafood or assorted cheeses.

Lovely value

Classic Loire SB pouilly fume. Very varietal earthy. Maybe short barrel time. Full round melons and citrus, yet crisp nice clean finish. Juicy priced just right. Previous review exaggerated. Buy it and u judge.

$100 Wine for $15

90+ Pouilly-Fume is an outstanding white wine worth more than six times its purchase price. I'm planning on getting more on my next order.
