Winemaker Notes: 

"Blanchet’s Pouilly-Fumé is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and has a nice balance of ripeness and crisp acidity with vibrant citrus fruit and a clean, mineral-driven finish. Crisp and light on the tongue, with flavors of Meyer lemons and limes, combined with a flinty, smoky perfume so characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc from this appellation.  Drinking like a sunny summer day, this wine is easy to drink on its own or make a great food wine." 

About the Wine: 

"The appellation of Pouilly-Fumé sits across the river from the hills of Sancerre, in the eastern Loire Valley. Sauvignon Blanc here is characterized by an unmistakable smoky, flinty aroma—indeed, fumé means “smoked” in French. Long before “silex” was made into a brand name, it was simply the term used to describe the type of soil found in the best vineyards in the Loire. Since the early 1990s, Francis Blanchet has been bottling wine from 100% silex vineyards. The wine is crisp and light on the tongue, with flavors of Meyer lemons and limes, combined with the flinty aroma that makes Sauvignon Blanc here so special." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
