POUILLY FUME – Jean-Marie Berthier – 2017
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…
Centre Val de Loire
Jean Marie Berthier
2017 is the latest in a succession of early harvests. As winter drew to a close with temperatures worthy of late spring, nature
snowballed ahead. The vines continued to reach each milestone early, right up until harvest – despite very variable conditions which changed month by month and area by area. In short – Centre-Loire’s 2017 wines are made for enjoyment.
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.
REVIEWS AND AWARDS
“Les vins jouent le registre du fruit et de la tension en blanc.”
“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.”Elle à table
