A tremendously good value Pouilly-Fumé, made just across the valley from Sancerre. Aromatic and floral with intricate zesty fruits on the palate and a dry, flinty finish. Delicious as an aperitif, with seafood or at the end of a meal with soft goats’ cheeses.
French still white wine from Loire Valley France, made with Sauvignon Blanc.
Pouilly Fume lies across the river Loire from Sancerre where it produces only half as much wine as its better known neighbour. The region has many small growers and some of the best of these have grouped together to form ‘Caves de Pouilly sur Loire’ reasoning that by pooling resources they are assured access to the best wine making facilities available.
