Domaine Chauveau Pouilly-Fumé "Les Croqloup" 2020


Available Now!

Alcohol : 14,5%

Localisation : Loire Valley, France

Grape variety : 100 % sauvignon blanc

Type of Soil : Siliceous clay . This white or brown clay envelops little pieces of flint. It pro-duces crisp Pouilly Fumé with “gun-flint” mineral aromas. These wines have good bottle ageing potential.

Wine-making : The grapes are pressed using a pneumatic press . Settling is done at 16°C, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (18-19°C maximum to conserve the aromas of the wine) in stainless steel tanks. Aged on lees for 6 to 8 months.

Tasting : Brilliant light gold with green tints. Endearing nose combining citrus fruits, blackcurrant bud and a mineral touch. A silky attack leads into an airy pa- late showing deliciously restrained fullness, crisp, precisely-delineated aro- mas and persistency. Lots of attributes.

Dishes and Wines : Pouilly Fumé makes a delightful aperitif. It is also perfect with seafood, especially oysters, grilled fish, and white meats.
