Pouilly Fume La Roche Blanche Domaine Laporte 75cl

£23.50
Country: FranceSuggested Food Pairing: Shellfish

This prestigious Pouilly-Fumé originates from a parcel of land that has been recognized since 1492. It has been aged in barrels to allow its flavours to fully develop.

This wine combines finesse and complexity from the 1.25 hectare old vines(Sauvignon) of. The flinty soil, poor yield, and the wine-making in oak barrels (30% of the production) give a high-class, complex, rich and refined Loire wine.

The plots that produce the grapes for this wine, are located on clay-limestone soils known as Kimmeridgian marl. Vinified by traditional methods, the wine undergoes a cold racking that preserves the aromatic nature of the Sauvignon Blanc grape; it is matured on the fine lees for a minimum of six months, which gives body to the wine.
