External Reviews for Pouilly Fume White Blend Vin de Pays du Val de Loire
Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley with mineral driven chalky character along with notes of pineapple and grapefruits. Dry and refreshing with a lovely floral character on the finish.
This prestige cuvee is considered a Loire Valley legend. Its rich texture and perfect blend of fruit and elegance make this one of France's most sought-after white wines.No oak involved! Pure Sauvignon Blanc which can only be compared in finesse and texture to a world class White Burgundy at twice the price. A very full, pretty nose and a silkiness on the palate that must be experienced to be believed.
