2016 POUILLY FUMÉ, Villa Paulus, Masson Blondelet. Loire (Half Bottle)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%

Area:

Pouilly-sur-Loire is just a few miles east (across the river) from Sancerre; not far from Orleans and more or less due south of Paris. This part of the ‘upper’ (i.e. inland) Loire Valley specialises in Sauvignon Blanc (Chenin dominates most of the river)

Grape variety:

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Producer:

Domaine Masson-Blondelet. Their vineyard is just 4.5ha (about 9 acres)

Maturity potential:

Can keep to 2015 but best this year

Old Bridge rating:

Classic Loire style – flinty-dry; aromatic but in a complex, mineral-not-fruity manner; intense but not rich. Traditional in the best sense of the word

Food match:

Loire Sauvignon is much more food-friendly than New World versions. This is an outstanding match for seafood or goats’ cheese
