Food Pairings for Henri Bourgeois Pouilly-fumé La Demoiselle De Bourgeois
Domaine Henri Bourgeois Pouilly Fume 2006.An acclaimed producer whose wines exhibit the complexity of the terroir of Chavignol, being chalky with a touch of gunflint, initially steely, then ripeness in the mouth with a broad array of flavours and wonderful length. Pouilly Fumé has an unusual flavor for a dry white wine: a strong flavor of musk and smoke. When the phylloxera destroyed all the vines 2 centuries ago, vine growers replace them with Sauvignon to create the Pouilly Fumé. Nowadays Pouilly sur Loire makes less than 5% of the production of Pouilly. Pouilly is very close to Sancerre, just on the other side of the river. However both wines are a little bit different. Pouilly Fumé is probably thicker, deeper and has more structure. The oaked Etienne Henri comes from the older vines on the flint clay slopes. Such a method of vinification requires top quality grapes for a successful marriage of wood and wine. A wonderful array of distinct flavours and good with a number of foods or as an aperitif.
