Overview

Appellation: Pouilly Fume A.C., Loire, France

Also known as Pouilly Blanc Fumé and Blanc Fumé de Pouilly, one of the Loire's most famous wines are perfumed, herbaceous dry whites that epitomize the sauvignon blanc grape. Grown on predominantly limestone soils with some flint allows the wine to exhibit a 'smoky' flavour, or whiff of gunflint. The wines are certainly perfumed, sometimes almost acrid, very similar to their neighbouring appellation of Sancerre.
