2018 DOMAINE NICOLAS GAUDRY POUILLY-FUME

$26.00 $26.00

The pinnacle of Sauvignon Blanc production comes from the iconic Loire Valley in France, and inside Loire, the regions of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé are foremost.  Both Sancerre Blanc and Pouilly-Fumé are composed of 100% Sauvignon Blanc, but you’re more likely to find Sancerre on your local restaurant wine lists.  The main reason for it is the output in Pouilly-Fume is roughly 1/3 of the total production of Sancerre…  The two regions are separated by a river and both share the same cool climate, limestone-clay soils with bands of silex, a clay-flint mixture.  On the palate, Pouilly-Fumé can be more lush than Sancerre and one hallmark is a subtle smoky, gunflint notes, which are less common in Sancerre.  The vineyard land in Pouilly-Fume can be less expensive than Sancerre and for that reason, the wines offer palpable levels of value.

The Gaudry family has been making wine in Pouilly-sur-Loire for generations and the wines offer a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc.  The vinify each individual plot separately and ferment them in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness.  Their 2018 is classically styled, poised and focused.  I highly recommend securing a case of this super-limited import.
