Les Moulins à Vent is a vineyard located in the Nivernais region of the eastern Loire towards Burgundy, made up of fine-grained limestone soils, shelly Kimmeridgian marl and clay with flint, absolutely ideal for Sauvignon Blanc and very typical for Pouilly-Fumé. The wine is aged on fine lees with regular stirring for 6 to 8 months to amplify body, texture and flavour.
Pale yellow with green highlights, the elegant nose is marked by a beautiful minerality, revealing notes of citrus, exotic fruits, blackcurrant bud and flint. The palate is fresh and ripe and round in body, full of finesse and lithe minerality, tropical fruits intermingling with exotic spices, with a gentle, refreshing acidity.
Serve up with white fish or shellfish, try with pan-fried scallops on thermidor sauce for the ultimate match.
