Bottle Size 75cl
Pouilly Fume is one of the more elegant and fancy examples of Sauvignon blanc around the world. It's the big brother to Sancerre, and this one shows a stereotypical bracing grapefruity, lemony acidity along with a fresh grassy and leafyness. The classic aroma that Pouilly is associated with, and wine nerds hunt for, as apposed to Sancerre, is the gunflint smokeyness.
The search for a good Pouilly can be heartbreaking and unforgiving, but we've only gone and done it! We use this on our most popular Tour De France tastings, and it's bloody delicious. Super typical of the area with a big streak of smoke, and really good value for what you're getting in the bottle - pair it with some local Loire goats cheese, or shellfish and you're gonna love it.
