POUILLY FUME – Clément & Florian Berthier

With a clear bright yellow colour, our Pouilly Fumé opens with a nose of white flowers, vegetable notes combined with citrus zest.

On the palate, the attack is forthright and lively, there is great delicacy with freshness and a nice minerality.

Finesse, succulence and smoothness…

PRESENTATION

THE VINTAGE

The wines of the 2019 vintage are expressive. One of their characteristics is aromatic purity. The maturation cycle will ultimately have been shorter for this vintage.

Vintage 2019 : a great success which confirms that the terroir is essential.

 

TERROIR

Our Pouilly Fumé comes from one of the area’s finest terroirs; Kimmeridgian marl with small oysters (Terres blanches). This terroir give finess and elegance to the wine.

 

 

WINEMAKING

As soon as they arrive in the winery, the harvested grapes are delicately pressed and the juice obtained is allowed to settle for around 36 hours. The alcoholic fermentation starts naturally at a controlled of the temperature (15-18°C).

 

SITUATION

Between Burgundy and Berry, the vineyard of Pouilly stretches over 1,245 ha on the right bank of the Loire.

VARIETALS

Sauvignon blanc : 100%

AGEING

The wine is then matured for a few months on its fine lees until the bottling is carried out in the spring.

 

 

REVIEWS AND AWARDS

14.5/20
“Les vins jouent le registre du fruit et de la tension en blanc.”

Guide Bettane et Desseauve des vins de France

“Les vins minéraux se marient également très bien avec les notes iodées de l’huître. Ainsi, un vin de Loire, par exemple un Pouilly-Fumé conviendra parfaitement.”
