Chateau Favray Pouilly Fume 2019
Vineyards on the 15-hectare estate are grouped on slopes comprised of limestone, marl, and flint. The harvest is received on an upper level, where grapes are sorted. They are destemmed and gently pressed. The juice is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and matures on its fine lees for 3 - 8 months. The wine is then bottled with a minimum of filtration in order to conserve all the interesting, natural flavors in the wine.
Chateau Favray vines have been cultivated on the slopes of Pouilly, exploiting two types of terroirs: Les Caillottes - calcareous soils, light and scattered with numerous white stones, marly clay with crushed, ancient oyster shells and flint. Soils, aspects and climate are of utmost importance; few other regions find such a synergy in terroir. The best wines come from Sauvignon Blanc, from the region Pouilly-sur-Loire. Sauvignon Blanc finds a sublime equilibrium in the climate and the expression of these terroirs. Pouilly is sufficiently continental to guard the freshness and temperate enough to carry roundness and delicacy.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES
Still young and tight, this wine has green fruits and a strong presence of citrus. Acidity cuts right through to give an intensely crisp aftertaste. Drink from 2021.
