DOMAINE DES RABICHATTES

Pouilly-Fumé

“Nothing beats Pouilly-Fumé, the essential crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The vibrant citrus freshness, refreshing minerality, endless finish and signature smoky note tell you this is a fantastic expression”

ELIZABETH KELLY MW

Wine Information

About the wine

Pouilly-Fumé must be made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Interestingly, this one is aged on its lees. This practice brings a subtle richness to the wine. Beautiful with goat’s cheese or pan-fried scallops topped with crème fraîche.

About the producer

Fabrice and Vincent Grebet have 20 hectares of vines between them. Winemaking in Pouilly-Fumé has certain soils to thank for its success. That's why they deliberately pick their grapes from three distinctly different areas with chalk, clay and flint soils. According to the brothers, this variety is how they achieve their best results.

About the region

'Fumé' is French for 'smoky'. And Pouilly-Fumé is known worldwide for its remarkable aromas of gunflint. It is rivalled only by Sancerre as the home of the Loire Valley's finest Sauvignon Blanc.
