Domaine Pierre Marchand, Pouilly Fumé, Les Loges
A complex, concentrated example of Pouilly Fumé with well balanced, crisp gooseberry and blackcurrant leaf fruit overlaid with hints of citrus and mineral. The finish is elegant and long with hints of flint and ripe apple. No oaking.
On this family owned 17 hectare Estate the system of minimum intervention is practised. The vines are on average 25 years old and are trained guyot simple. Each year there is green harvest and debudding in the spring in order to improve quality. The vine vigour and yield is reduced further by use of cover crops.
