HALF BOTTLES: SPARKLING AND WHITE

Sparkling & White - POUILLY FUMÉ, Villa Paulus, Masson Blondelet. Loire (Half Bottle)

2015 POUILLY FUMÉ, Villa Paulus, Masson Blondelet. Loire (Half Bottle)

Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Size of bottle: 375ml
Area: Pouilly-sur-Loire is just a few miles east (across the river) from Sancerre; not far from Orleans and more or less due south of Paris. This part of the 'upper' (i.e. inland) Loire Valley specialises in Sauvignon Blanc (Chenin dominates most of the river)
Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Domaine Masson-Blondelet. Their vineyard is just 4.5ha (about 9 acres)
Cellar Potential: Can keep to 2015 but best this year
Food Match: Loire Sauvignon is much more food-friendly than New World versions. This is an outstanding match for seafood or goats' cheese
Old Bridge Rating: Classic Loire style - flinty-dry; aromatic but in a complex, mineral-not-fruity manner; intense but not rich. Traditional in the best sense of the word

£10.00 per bottle
£9.50 per bottle in a mixed case of 6 bottles
£9.00 per bottle in a mixed case of 12 bottles
