Old vines, centuries-old oak and long maturation on lees create this cuvee for aging.
Selected from a parcel of vines over 70 years-old growing in the exceptional terroir of Saint Andelain (clay marl and flint), this cuvee is vinified in 300 and 600 liter oak barrels (1/4 new oak, 3/4 in 2,3 and 4 year-old barrels).
The barrels are made from oak of the Bertrange forest located about 20 kilometers from Pouilly. This forest, like the Tronçais forest, was planted during the time of Sully more than 300 years ago. These old, slow-growing oaks have very fine grain which is ideal for wine.
One year of aging on lees allows the wine to express the minerality of its terroir, oak notes only appear at the finish.
The freshness and fruitiness make it a perfect match for Loire River fish, pickerel with dill, pike with white butter sauce; yet its unctuousness and richness on the palate allows it to harmonize equally well with smoked salmon or even foie gras.
A wine of noble origin vinified in a noble material for your pure enjoyment...
