The Upper Loire Valley is known for two iconic wine growing sub-regions – Pouilly Fume, and Sancerre. Nearly all wine cultivated in these areas are from the Sauvignon Blanc variety and wines from the Pouilly Fume tend to be a little more full-bodied than their Sancerre counterparts.
Situated in the aforementioned Loire valley, AOC Pouilly Fume is an area where Sauvignon Blanc thrives. The Maison Castel team works with a partner-grower whose vines are planted in an excellent quality clay-flint soil which reveals this grape's expression.
It is suggested you drink this cuvee in the 4-6 year age range so get glugging on this before the end of 2022 ideally.
"With this AOC Pouilly Fume, Maison Castel demonstrates its expertise and French savoir-faire, working in partnership with prestigious estates to create a perfectly-balanced wine. This elegant wine will be appreciated by wine enthusiasts looking for finesse and aromatic complexity".
