2021 Serge Dagueneau & Filles Pouilly Fume Tradition
This is the main cuvée at this estate, coming from a number of different parcels in the village of Saint Andelain close to the Loire, all planted on Kimmeridgian marl, the Terres Blanches soil that makes these wines so distinctive. Vinified in stainless steel and aged on fine lees.
Bright pale straw colour with a watery hue. Herbaceous gooseberry, pear and lime aromas mix with delicate honeyed notes, asparagus and smoky minerals. Brisk lime and green apple fruits are intermeshed with subtle herbaceous asparagus like characters, wet stone and smoky mineral elements. Crisp acidity with a nicely rounded river stone like mouthfeel finishing dry, savoury and refreshing.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
