Vinification Details

  • Planted on great terroirs, thriving on a mild climate brought by the Loire River, the Sauvignon fully delivers its incredible potential. Our mission is to ensure that each vineyard reach their full ripening potential. Harmonious and respectufl vineyard practices enable us to pick great quality grapes resulting in minimal winemaking. The temperature controlled fermentation is followed by a 6-12 month fine lees ageing. The wines are bottled in Spring after a slight filtration.

History

  • Nestled in the heart of the Sancerre appellation, the Domaine Fournier Père et Fils winery goes back generations of winemakers since 1926. Grown on the 3 central communes of the appellation: Tracy sur Loire, Pouilly sur Loire and St Andelain, our vines benefit from the intense luminosity and the mild climate, tempered by the proximity of the Loire river. The perfect alliance of the different terroirs, the late fruit picking and a mastered fine lees ageing process makes a fine cuvée.

Regional Information

  • On the other bank of the Loire River, just opposite to Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé is world famous for its smoky aromas that epitomizes the Sauvignon Blanc aristocracy.

Disappointing

3 stars

Review from tesco.com

I was probably hoping for too much at this price. A drinkable wine, but without the delicious flinty taste of a good Pouilly Fume.

A very good wine, thoroughly enjoyed by my wife.

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

We would be very happy to buy this wine for our guests (probably 150) at our granddaughter's wedding in July - as well as an equally good claret and an acceptable champagne - provided the supplier could arrange the hire of glasses (Service not available at our local store)

Finest Pouilly Fume

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

I have tried loads of supermarkets, and wine shops for this wine and always come back for the Tesco finest. It is the best!

Not Great

2 stars

Review from tesco.com

Pouily Fume should be creamy. This one is sharp and acidic, and more like a Sauvignon Blanc, that you can get for half the price. Disappointing.

Needs time

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

Although obviously very good now I think it will improve with a few years of maturing. I have had this wine several times of different vintages and they were all good to very impressive. It must not be over chilled to dull the flavour just cool I find is best. The IWSC don't hand out bronze medals for just turning up.

Smooth Drinking

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

Very pleased with this purchase. Pouilly Fume is a favourite and this particular wine had a smooth quality with subtle flavours. Best not to over chill.

Excellent wine

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

I really enjoyed this wine. Reasonably priced when on offer. Well worth a try.

Super

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

I have been buying this wine from Tesco for a few years now and never fail to enjoy it - especially when it is on offer. I have tried many other Pouilly Fume - some more expensive - and always come back to this, my favourite.

Rather poor for a Pouilly Fume

2 stars

Review from tesco.com

This wine was rather flat tasting and acidic. There was a lack of roundness of flavour and bouquet. I would not have guessed that it was a Pouilly Fume.
