Domaine Masson-Blondelet Pouilly-Fume 2014
By Domaine Masson-Blondelet
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Vineyard Surface: 4 Ha 50, aged between 25 and 40 years old.
Soil: Kimmeridgean marl (white clay with fossilised little oysters and shells).
Exposition: South-south east.
Production: Around 32,000 bottles.
Keeping: Up to 5 years, apogee in the 2nd and 3rd year.
The vines are regularly tilled to oxygenate the ground, pruning is short, organic philosophy: No use of chemical fertiliser, nor insecticide, nor weed-killer.
Immediate destemming and immediate press after harvest to avoid skin contact or oxidation. Very gentle press in our pneumatic press, fermentation in stainless steel tanks after cold settling, long conservation on very fine lees to enhance texture and youth character, no malolactic fermentation.
Served chilled at 12’C. It is ideal alone as an aperitif. It is the perfect match with seafood, all fishes (raw, cooked, grilled or smoked) but also with poultry or white meats. It is also great with cheeses, particularly goat cheeses.
