Fournier are wine growers making classic Pouilly Fume and Sancerre in their family winery. The wines can be described as herby, steely, gunflint-smoky, combining appealing aromas with a refreshing crispness.
The vineyards of Sancerre face those of Pouilly Fume across the mighty Loire river. Both areas produce wine from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The Fournier family estate has grown from five hectares in 1950 to 60 hectares today, divided over the appellations of Menetou Salon, Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé.
