Domaine Alexandre Bain Pouilly-Fume
Dry, fruity, smoky
Pouilly-Fumé originated from the town of Pouilly-sur-Loire, located directly across the Loire River from the commune of Sancerre. The soil here is very flinty with deposits of limestone which the locals believed imparted a smoky, gun flint flavour to the wine and hence Fumé, the French word for “smoke” was attached to the wine.
2007 was Alexandre Bain’s first vintage. Boasting notes of tropical fruit, pineapple and kiwi on the nose, the palate is well-structured with a hint of that typical Pouilly-Fumé smokiness on the finish.
We look forward to more from Alexandre.
Very limited stocks!!
