Pouilly Fumé, Loire Valley, France
This wine comes from the first certified organic estate in the Loire Valley and in 2021 they will be fully biodynamic certified as well. The wines are made from 10 hectares worth of Sauvignon Blanc planted around the winery, which is located in the village of Saint Andelain on the east side of the Loire (facing Sancerre). Biodynamic practices are taken within the vineyard and winery and the wines are naturally fermented in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and aged in either vat, barrique or amphora.

A coating of ash and stone over the ripe citrus-fruit and apple notes on the nose. Turns to sweet apple and pear flavors on the medium-bodied, dense and silky palate. Quite a round, fruity feel, but the drive of acidity keeps it moving. The mineral notes return in the aftertaste. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.

The 2019 Sancerre Terres Blanches is now starting toblossom. It provides appetizing drinking with its mid-palate tenderness, floral and orchard fruit flavors and hints of lees-derived almond croissant. This wine gives both a gentle embrace and a fine line thanks to its mouthwatering acidity and the vineyard'sterres blanches–clay and limestone soils.--
