Domaine Chauveau Pouilly Fumé "La Charmette" 2018
What is it? 100% sauvignon blanc from Chauveau’s exceptional “La Charmette” vineyard of Kimmeridgien marl (tiny oyster marl) and Villier limestone. This exceptional Pouilly Fumé is among the best we’ve tasted from the spectacular 2018 vintage and the price is amazing. ABV is 13%.
What does it taste like? This is appealingly ripe and aromatic Pouilly Fumé with gorgeous aromas of flowers, citrus, white fruit, and chalky minerals. The palate is rich with invigorating citrus and pit fruit notes wrapped around classic Pouilly Fumé minerality.
Is it right for you? For fans of sauvignon blanc, this is a "must have" wine. On sale, it costs far less than many of the famed dry whites of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé that it trounces in tastings. This is a special sauvignon blanc you shouldn’t miss; rich and full enough for thanksgiving dinner, and vivid enough for seafood.
Is it ready to drink? This full, deeply flavored Pouilly Fumé is outstanding and ready to drink this winter with seafood or poultry. It can also last 5 more years with good storage.
