From: Loire, France
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes: "Coming from more silex and flinty soils, the 2019 Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée Silice is a more textured, layered Sauvignon Blanc offering bright white grapefruit and citrus notes as well as plenty of floral nuances. It shows more minerality on the palate yet still packs ample richness and length. This beautiful Pouilly-Fumé that can be drunk today or cellared for over a decade if you see fit." –Jeb Dunnuck, 91 points
“When Blanchet’s “Cuvée Silice” arrives in the US each year, we don’t stand to attention—we jump. It’s a wine that consistently and perfectly defines an entire region.”–
"Here is white wine with both bite and body, sweet white fruit wrapped in a refreshingly light, citrus lining. Exactly what Pouilly-Fumé is supposed to be—balanced, fresh and fruity, and at its heart a stony, flint-inspired soul." –North Berkeley Imports
"This young wine is taut, textured and full of crisp, sliced-apple fruits. With an edge of minerality and steely character, it needs time. Drink from 2021." –Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 89 points
Pairing: This wine is easy to drink on its own but would also pair beautifully with traditional pairings for the area including tomato tarts, mussels with a mignonette, and lemon-herbed grilled chicken.
