J. de Villebois - Pouilly Fume
The POUILLY FUMÉ’s complexity originates from the various Pouilly-Fumé Terroirs. Like nowhere in the world, the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety reveals its full potential thanks to the diverse terroirs of Pouilly. Thanks to a rigorous work in the vineyard and the winery, J. de Villebois encapsulates the spirit of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation.
Yellow-green pale color. The subtle nose reveals a combination of smoky and ripe fruit favors. The palate is dominated by the favors of candied pineapple, peach and mango. An elegant acidity supporting the typical “smoky” favors of Pouilly Fumé completes this great Pouilly-Fumé.
The sauvignon blanc grapes are grown on the main Pouilly Fumé terroirs : Villiers and Barrois Limestones, Marls with oyster shells, Clayey-fint soils.
The grapes are quickly transported to the winery to minimize skin contact before gentle pressing into a pneumatic press. The grape juices are fermented traditionally in stainless steel tanks during 7 to 15 days.
The newly made wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks during at least 6 months. It is then blended and bottled in the spring following the harvest.
Delicious on its own or as an aperitif. Goes very well with oysters and lobster, rich seafood dishes and goat cheeses (Crotn de Chavignol, Sainte Maure de Touraine)
