J. de Villebois - Pouilly-Fumé Marnes Kimméridgiennes
Originating from the Jurassic era, the Kimmeridgian marls form one of the most exceptional terroirs present in the Pouilly-Fumé appellation. This unique terroir produces rich and powerful wines with great aging potential. This Sauvignon Blanc expresses itself fully and reveals all its complexity and aromatic richness. Through rigorous grape selection / work in the vineyard and profound dedication in the winery, J. de Villebois encapsulates the nobility of the Blanc Fumé de Pouilly.
Deep golden color. A powerful nose, dominated by notes of exotic fruits and candied citrus. A rich and complex mouthfeel, with an elegant balance between its power and roundness . The beautiful length complements the wine expressing a chiselled acidity releasing the smoky notes, so authentic to the terroir of the Kimmeridgian marls.
After being tasted, the berries are picked at their optimum maturity. They are then gently pressed in order to extract all their aromatic richness. The juice is then traditionally vinified in thermoregulated tanks and also for a very small part in 228 liter barrels.
This cuvée was aged on its fine lees for 6 months with regular batonnage. The bottling took place in November 2015, then the wine was rested tranquilly in our cellars until it reached its optimal maturity for consumption.
