Domaine Patrice Moreux Pouilly-Fumé 2019
Domaine Patrice Moreux Pouilly-Fumé has elegance at the heart of its typicity and personality. Clear yellow colour with green highlights. Expressive lemon and lime citrus bouquet with a hint of blackcurrant leaf and flint. Generous and exuberant, round mouthfeel. Flavours of lemon citrus, peach and stoney flint minerals that round up in a finely balanced freshness.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is a subtle blend of 3 terroirs, the majority around the village of Les Loges, Saint-Andelain. The fruit comes from 30-years-old vines growing in limestone-clay soils. Limited intervention viticultural practice. Use of organic fertilizers only when necessary.
After a careful selection, the fruit goes through gentle pneumatic pressing. Spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts from the grapes in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Ageing on lees in concrete tanks. The lunar cycle guides the vinification process.
Ageing potential: 5–8 years
