Description

‘Les Tuileries’ is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc from a small vineyard along the northern hillside of the Loire river, north of Pouilly and east of Sancerre. Vines are around 40 years old and the wine is matured on the lees for 6 to 9 months before bottling, contributing factors in the depth, fine texture and elegance of this wine.

Light gold with green reflections, the nose is an elegant mix of green fruit, citrus and floral aromas, the palate ripe and fleshy with flavours of quince, pear and melon, finishing crisp and dry with a fine minerality. Serve up with fish or white meats with creamy sauces.

Coteaux du Giennois is a small appellation of less than 200 hectares, situated north-east of Sancerre on the banks of the river Loire. The limestone soil is characteristically flinty, producing crisp, fruity, minerally white wines, and light, elegant, fruity reds.

Producer: Caves de Pouilly-sur-Loire

This cooperative in the river-side village of Pouilly-sur-Loire was founded in 1948 by a handful of winemakers and continues to work with a group of dedicated growers whose vineyards stretch across Pouilly Fumé, Pouilly-sur-Loire and Coteaux du Giennois.

Sprawling some eight kilometres along the well-exposed slopes that border the right bank of the Loire River, the cooperative’s vineyards receive bountiful sunshine ensuring optimal ripeness at harvest.

The group produce an impressive 10% of the total production of Pouilly Fumé and Pouilly-sur-Loire, including 100 hectares of Pouilly Fumé, which is comprised entirely of Sauvignon Blanc. The soil here is varied, but the unique Kimmeridgian marl is dominant, lending more body to Sauvignon Blancs of this appellation.
