Pouilly-Fumé, Chatelain 2020 'A classic, reliable, near-perfect Sauvignon Blanc'
Pouilly-Fumé Les Chailloux Silex, Domaine Chatelain 2020
Vines in this area of the Loire Valley have been grown since 1630 and this wonderful Sauvignon Blanc (all Pouilly-Fumé is Sauvignon Blanc) is run by the twelth generation of winemakers. The vines grow in clay soil with an abundance of sharp flints. The resulting juice spends three month on its lees (the sediment after pressing). A lively, intense nose of green fruit gives way to minerally notes and a hint of citrus. In short this is a classic, reliable, dry Sauvignon Blanc.
