Winemaker's Notes

La Poussie is "a jewel in the Sancerre." The vineyard's origins can be traced back to the Capetians, as witnessed by a document dating from around 1040. Following the French Revolution, the property was divided into 250 parcels. It took 70 years of perseverance and negotiation to bring it back to a sole ownership under the direction of the Baron de Ladoucette. This exceptional sun-drenched vineyard site with its natural amphitheater of an almost perfect semi-circle of 180° makes it one of the most unique in the world and provides a perfect microclimate for the vines.

La Poussie produces a light, fruity, dry and vigorous Sauvignon Blanc, infused with the clay and limestone soil.

Critical Acclaim

"This is crisp and focused, its lemon-lime and Asian pear aromas enlivened by snappy notes of fresh herbs and chalk. The balance of fruit and acidity is superb from beginning to end, giving this wonderful length and poise. "
