Régis Minet / Pouilly-Fumé Vieilles Vignes 2018 / 750mL
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Geography: Loire Valley, France
The old vines and fermentation with natural yeasts have give this wine intensity and great flavor. Tangy, ripe green and citrus fruits are lined with acidity and a touch of minerality. Drink the wine now. ROGER VOSS
Pouilly-sur-Loire produces one of the greatest Sauvignon Blancs in the world. Régis Minet’s vineyards sit at 750 feet, surrounded by hills on the far east of the Loire River, and centered proudly on the prized limestone and clay of the Kimmeridgian chain. The scattered flint in these vineyards imbues the wines with a character quite distinctive from the neighboring village of Sancerre. In the eloquent words of KLWM Store Manager, Steve Waters, “You couldn’t ask for a cleaner, fresher, flintier, or truer expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Its mouth-watering acidity, depth of flavor, and fleshy texture will have you racing back for more.”
Cuvée selection of our vines aged 30 years on average. Beautiful pale gold. The nose offers tasty notes of ripe citrus. Mouth is clear, mineral and well balanced. Vieilles Vignes goes perfectly with white meats and cheeses.
