    Winemaker Notes

    The Pouilly Fume wine is made exclusively from the "Sauvignon" grape. This "cru" has the typical "gun flint" flavor which goes remarkably well with seafood, fish with white butter sauce, and goat cheese. On the nose, floral aromas with pepper, and citrus fruits. On the palate, complex while being fruity, fresh and mineral at once.

    Image of winery
    Herve Seguin's vineyards cover 10 hectares in three villages of Pouilly-Fume. His vineyards average 30 years of age and are planted in limestone soils, where Sauvignon Blanc performs best. All the fruit goes through a severe selection in the vineyard and is hand harvested to insure the grapes arrive at the winery unblemished. This wine has extraordinary aromatics of smoky, flinty grapefruit with intense Sauvignon flavors. Seguin never pumps or filters prior to bottling.

    Famous in the Loire and throughout the world for perfumed Sauvignon blanc, Pouilly-Fume sits due east, across the Loire River from Sancerre. Limestone soils with clay and flint (also called silex) contribute to the wines' freshness and often times smoky, flinty, mineral character.

    A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. However, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and here is most important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand, California, Australia and parts of northeastern Italy. Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon blanc.

    In the Glass

    From its homeland In Bordeaux, winemakers prefer to blend it with Sémillon to produce a softer, richer style. In the Loire Valley, it expresses citrus, flint and smoky flavors, especially from in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. Marlborough, New Zealand often produces a pungent and racy version, often reminiscent of cut grass, gooseberry and grapefruit. California produces fruity and rich oak-aged versions as well as snappy and fresh, Sauvignon blancs, which never see any oak.

    Perfect Pairings

    The freshness of Sauvignon Blanc’s flavor lends it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood and mild Asian cuisine. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like artichokes or asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it can be paired with more complex seafood and chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is the proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (an herbaceous aromatic compound) inherent to each member of the family.
