Degustation notes

Youthful pale yellow colour with tints of green, a floral bouquet reveals aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit, mineral notes andgreen bell pepper (typical of Sauvignon Blanc), sustained acidity and liveliness as well as refreshing, hints of lime, great character, a straight yet very expressive wine that is long on the palate.

Special notes

Pouilly-Fumé is a famous appellation. This Loire wine, which owes its name to a note of slight smokiness, that combines the biting and the freshness of a Sauvignon Blanc. The first part of the appellation refers to the town of Pouilly-sur-Loire, close to the vineyards. This wine is the epitome of a classic Sauvignon Blanc, a Sancerre neighbor on the opposite bank of the Loire Valley. The sauvignon varietal grows here on the most varied of soils, again where marl and limestone are dominant.
