- Optimum ripeness is crucial so as to combine fruit and freshness, so the winemaker waits until the moment of finest ripeness before starting the harvest. Pressing is done in modern pneumatic presses in the winery, and the must is fermented at cool temperatures. The winery is kept at a cool temperature throughout, since freshness and aromatic purity are the important elements here.
- 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. This Finest Sancerre has sufficient structure to accompany fish dishes and white meats. Traditionally these wines are made to be drunk with food and consequently the emphasis is on floral and elegant freshness rather than great structure.
- 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.
