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…
Serve it between 8 and 10°C.
Drink it now or wait 2-3 years.
This wine pairs well with roast or grilled saltwater fish, scallops or even a skate and crayfish gelée with green apples.
It can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with fish, seafood and cheeses, or simply just enjoy with friends…

Clément & Florian Berthier
The wines of the 2020 vintage are expressive. One of their characteristics is aromatic purity. The maturation cycle will ultimately have been shorter for this vintage.
Vintage 2020 : a great success which confirms that the terroir is essential.
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.
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).
Sauvignon blanc : 100%
The wine is then matured for a few months on its fine lees until the bottling is carried out in the spring.

93 POINTS : POUILLY FUME 2021
The 2021 Pouilly-Fumé opens with a pure and airy bouquet of bright fruits and delicate flint stone aromas. Not as deep and intense as the 2021 Sancerre, but it’s beautiful as well. […]
“Les vins jouent le registre du fruit et de la tension en blanc.”
93 POINTS : POUILLY FUME 2020
The Berthier 2020 Pouilly-Fumé is clear, fresh and iodine-scented like an oyster with lemon, lime and kiwi aromas as well as some flinty nuances in the background. […]
“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.”
