Pouilly-fumé Wine

 

Pouilly-Fume is an appellation in the so-called Central Vineyards of the Loire Valley -- the eastern Loire. The grape variety used is Sauvignon Blanc. Here, as in Sancerre, just across the river, one finds Kimmeridgian limestone soil, but there is flint, too, which gives these Sauvignons their characteristic gunflint aroma.
