A serious Pouilly-Fumé where we have struck gold - or rather sensational minerality in this top Pouilly-Fumé from 65 year+ old vines grown on limestone. A glorious crisp, elegant and complex wine at this price is a fantastic value for money.

About

We found this family run estate in the Loire and upon initial tasting we knew we had struck gold - the Pouilly-Fumé we had been looking for! The 65+ year old vines are grown in limestone soil that give fantastic minerality. The wine has wonderful elegance and complexity of flavour which comes from 9 months in steel vats. The outcome is glorious. No one needed to be persuaded to stock this Loire gem. Born in the nineteenth century, the family estate is located in the heart of their vineyard. They cultivate 19 hectares (45 acres) of Pouilly-Fumé (Sauvignon) and 1 hectare (2 acres) of Pouilly-sur-Loire (Chasselas) respecting ancestral traditions. The estate strive for quality and they work hard to implement and express their hard work into every bottle.

"A Loire wine for those who don't like their Sauvignon Blanc too tropical or too green, this pale-coloured, mineral example has stony aromas, citrus and the vaguest suggestion of nettle. In the mouth the 65-year-old vines grown on limestone soils give a natural concentration and bit of grip, the fruit taut with melon rind and lemon peel flavours, that little stone and salts note there in the acidity of the finish." Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com


The 2017 Pouilly-Fumé ‘Les Aveillons’, Domaine de la Loge is a more than worthy successor to the previous vintage that we offered last year so successfully. Produced by the Millet family from 65-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines, it’s complex and citrusy, with hints of white stone fruit, great depth of flavour and a tight mineral core. I found it deeply satisfying, as did Mrs Ray, who managed to knock off the rest of the bottle while my back was turned overseeing our boys’ A Level/GCSE revision, laying the table and cooking supper.
