~ 96/100 (Outstanding) DECANTER Magazine 07/23 « Sancerre et Pouilly-Fumé »

96/100 Jim Budd : « Ripe aromas of yellow plum. Complexity and length with enough vibrant acidity to balance the rich fruit. Lovely wine to drink now or to keep. »

95/100 Nathalie Earl : « Flinty steely notes meld with wisps of smoke, toast, greengage and yellow plum. Sweet lemon rind characters – a soft mouthfeel supported by fresh acidity and spice. »

96/100 Ben Llewelyn : « Well-balanced, elegant. Box, thyme, verbena and flint move seamlessly through to the finish. Rounded and elegant. »

~ 92/100, Editor’s Choice, Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast 2019 : «Old vines are the heart of this wine from a single parcel of less than two acres. They give a structured win, very mineral and concentrated, bringing out great acidity as well as green fruits. The wine is only just ready and will be better from 2020. »

~ 86/100, IWSC 2019  :  « Yellow stone fruit aromas, roasted lemons, a little honeyed development also. Showing a level of nice compact fruit, clean acidity and fairly long, a modern style and very tasty. »

Je crois qu’on ne peut pas demander mieux à un Sauvignon. Même un Cloudy Bay ne lui arrive pas à la cheville. Sur de simples rillettes de thon, humm..!

Tres belle maison. Tres bon vin, dans l’essence de ce qu’il se fait de mieux en Pouilly fumé

Blind tasting. Upfront: pale yellow color, with marked aromas of citrus, with background of tropical fruits. On the palate, young and bright, with high acidity. Notes of subtle minerality. Original guess: Sauvignon blanc from New Zealand. Pleasantly surprised.

floral notes and citrus on the nose. Very well balanced acidity, medium lingering finish.

Lovely with fish, salades and soups

Beautiful pouilly fume. Lively nose with minerals and citrus fruit. Well balanced stony fruitiness and minerals but still full bodied. Drank it with asparagus a la brabanconne and it held up great.

Un échantillon brut de cuve, prélevé en cours d’élevage et auquel il aura fallu une bonne heure d’aération pour se mettre en place.
À l’ouverture, c’est complètement mutique. Mais la métamorphose fini par se produire.
Un joli nez très frais se développe sur le citron, le buis et une belle touche minérale.
En bouche, la matière est bien droite mais pas très généreuse. L’expression se fait plus exotique, sur des notes subtiles de litchi et kiwi bien fraîches, mêlées à une belle minéralité fumée.
