Size: 750.00ml
The Gaudry family has been making wine in Pouilly-sur-Loire for generations, and the wines offer a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc. They vinify each plot separately and ferment them in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness. Famous in the Loire and throughout the world for perfumed Sauvignon Blanc, Pouilly-Fumé sits due east, across the Loire River from Sancerre. Limestone soils with clay and flint (also called silex) contribute to the wines' freshness and often times smoky, flinty, mineral character. On the palate, Pouilly-Fumé can be more lush than Sancerre, and one hallmark is a subtle smoky, gunflint note, which is less common in Sancerre. One of the best examples of classic Pouilly-Fume is from Nicholas Gaudry, whose 2019 is absolutely delicious. The bouquet is fresh with notes of white flowers and citrus fruit. The palate is dynamic, with crisp acidity and stone fruit notes. A pleasant finish. Enjoy this wine with Cheese Gougères, fish, shellfish, poultry, and fresh cheeses.
