Domaine Bruno Blondelet Pouilly Fumé 2022

(0 customer reviews)
£23.00

Bruno Blondelet Pouilly Fumé is classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire, similar to Sancerre, but a little more minerally. It’s a lovely, complex, dry white wine with classic gooseberry and green apple aromas and flavours but also with hints of pineapple, lime, tangerines and nectarines.

Description

Bruno Blondelet is from a family of Pouilly Fumé producers; his family have been producing wine in the Loire Valley for 3 generations. Now son-in-law, Florian Fargeau has joined the domaine and is taking things forward. The winery is in the process of changing its name to Domaine Blondelet-Fargeau.

 

The family has a number of small vineyards (totalling 12 hectares); they make separate Sauvignon Blanc wines from each of their vineyards and then blend them into this classic Pouilly Fumé.  They are keen to create an aromatic Sauvignon Blanc expressive of the grape and of the unique flinty soils of the Pouilly Fumé region and so this wine is unoaked. It’s a relatively cool region so the alcohol level of this wine is a gentle 13% ABV. Lutte raisonnée or sustainable farming is practised.

 

Bruno Blondelet Pouilly Fumé is a lovely, complex wine with classic gooseberry and green apple aromas and flavours but also with hints of pineapple, lime, tangerines and nectarines. There is a touch of flintiness, a little like wet stones. Like a good Sancerre this is a pretty, elegant Sauvignon Blanc. There is a very light creaminess to the wine veering towards a medium body but the wine is essentially light and refreshingly crisp as you would expect – and on re-tasting it I was impressed with the really long, tasty finish. Superb!

 

Note: to avoid confusion Pouilly Fumé is Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire whilst Pouilly Fuissé is Chardonnay from Burgundy. Both classy French wines but quite different. Pouilly Fumé is a classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc, similar to the other prestigious Sauvignon Blanc appellation, Sancerre, but a little more minerally; it is complex with a light creamy texture, yet refreshingly crisp.

How to Enjoy this Wine

Unoaked Pouilly Fumé like this one will go well with seafood, fish and poultry dishes. Also, perhaps surprisingly, it can cope with goats cheese, ricotta even feta and Parmesan and acidic food like vinaigrette and tomatoes.

Serve at: 10 – 12oC
