Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape grown in the Loire Valley, this is from Sancerre's neighbouring wine producing region of Pouilly Fume.
This one has all the wonderful flavours of Sauvignon - citrus and gooseberry - but with an added almost flinty character.
An incredible match for seafood.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years

Of the 2014 vintage, Metthew Jukes said: “If Sancerre is the most famous French Sauvignon Blanc then Pouilly-Fumé must be a very close second. Fournier’s Tesco own-label wine is a very assured effort with proper gunflint (fume refers to ‘flintiness’, found in the soil, and not ‘smoke’) notes and a tidy, prim finish. This is a classic wine to drink with oysters, shellfish and also goats’ cheese dishes – all in all it is an accomplished all rounder with traditional, posh starters!”
Fournier are wine growers making classic Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé in their family winery. The Fournier family estate has grown from five hectares in 1950. The wines can be described as herby, gunflint-smoky, combining appealing aromas with a refreshing crispness. Finest Pouilly Fumé comes from Claude's best vineyards, many of which are composed of old vines, making for rich and intense wines.
The vineyards of the Central Loire comprise Pouilly Fumé, Sancerre and Menetou Salon. Sauvignon Blanc is the most grown variety, with Pinot Noir being use for red and rosé styles.
