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 3 years

Of the 2009 vintage, Terry Kirby said: "Another great French name given the Finest* treatment and winner of the Great-Value-White-Under-£12, this Loire wine is as typical example of European Sauvignon Blanc as can be - a lovely summer bottle, excellent with prime flat white fish. Modern wine-making techniques, with stainless steel vats and no sign of oak, result in a pure, clean taste of gooesberries, grass and lemon zest and a finish that is perfectly crisp and dry."
Susy Atkins - Stella (The Sunday Telegraph) 14/10/2012
Of the 2009 vintage, Suzy Atkins said: "Taut, tongue-tingling sauvignon with pure, crisp, minerally lemon streaked through it - very dry and made for white fish and seafood."
