Pouilly-Fume

Pouilly-Fumé is a famous white Sauvignon Blanc appellation located on the right bank of the Loire River. At 1,200 hectares, it is approximately half the size of nearby Sancerre and tightly-focused around the villages of St Andelain and Les Loges on a south-west facing slope. Such is the stony intensity of a good Pouilly-Fumé that many producers are now ageing their best crus in French oak, to good effect.

Pouilly-Fumé is a famous white Sauvignon Blanc appellation located on the right bank of the Loire River.

Compared to Sancerre on the opposite bank, the Pouilly-Fumé appellation is approximately half the size at 1,200 hectares, and tightly-focused around the villages of St Andelain and Les Loges on a fairly homogeneous, south-west facing slope. The appellation's soils are divided between limestone-rich Kimmeridgean and Portlandian (less active calcium) clay, with the cherry on the cake being the red, flinty clay soils clustered around the St Andelain knoll.

Top vineyards in Pouilly-Fumé include Les Cocques, Les Bois and Les Cornets. The result is a floral, finely-poised yet powerful nose, with a noticeably limestone-like dry palate kept taut by a fine structure. Indeed such is the stony intensity of a good Pouilly-Fumé that an increasing number of producers are ageing their best crus in French oak, to good effect.

Recommmended producers: Didier Dagueneau, Alain Cailbourdin, André Dezat and the up-and-coming Nicolas Gaudry
