Domaine Masson-Blondelet is one of the best Pouilly domaines in France.  This famed domaine is one of the region's best-loved producers.  Seven generations of winemaking have made them famous for their quality and the purest expression of Sauvignon Blanc.  Masson-Blondelet's vineyards are some of the finest terroirs in all of Pouilly-Fume.  Their steadfast commitment to environmentally friendly practices sets them apart from other Pouilly domaines.  Their wines are tough to find in the States and most people have never even heard of them.  That's because they're a small estate and most of their miniscule production is snapped up by top Michelin restaurants throughout France and the rest of Europe.  Domaine Masson-Blondelet wines are classic Pouilly-Fume - delicious and nuanced.  Their Cullus bottling is only made in the very best of vintages.  The 2020 Domaine Masson-Blondelet Pouilly-Fume Tradition Cullus is an extraordinary, rich, full and harmonious cuvee.  Its full of ripe stone fruit aromas and vibrant, balancing acidity.  It's a powerful wine with freshness on the finish.  This Sauvignon Blanc abounds with notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, jasmine, pineapple, lemon verbena, thyme and almonds.  It's well-defined with excellent concentration and chalky minerality.  It's smooth and rounded with the potential to age further.  Enjoy! 

Decanter, 96 Points 

"Jean-Michel and Michelle Masson took over the running of the family domaine in 1975, and their daughter Mélanie and son Pierre-François are now fully involved. Today they have 21ha in Pouilly-Fumé and Sancerre. This wine is from a 1.5ha parcel on Kimmeridgian marl, the domaine’s oldest vines at 60-80 years. Fermented in 600L French oak barrels then 12 months’ maturation in oak and 12 months in stainless steel. The Cullus is made only in the best vintages. Jim Budd: Ripe stone fruit aromas, vibrant balancing acidity, good length. A powerful wine but still has freshness on the finish, with potential to age further. Natalie Earl: Crushed rocks, a toasty char and bags of honeysuckle and jasmine florals, pineapple peeping in, too. Well defined, excellent concentration, balanced by chalky minerality and an almond skin bitterness. Ben Llewelyn: Very flashy aromatics, high-toned and confident. Box, lemon verbena and thyme all make an appearance on a taut and lean and balanced palate." 

Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"This lightly wood-aged wine is smooth and offers ripe white fruits. Its hints of toast are beautifully judged, giving a rounded wine." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"This extraordinary rich, full and harmonious cuvée is the perfect match with an elaborate, rich or spicy cuisine or even with sweet and salty combinations."
