Chateau Favray Pouilly Fume 2014

£14.49

 

TASTING NOTE

Not just a grassy, acidic dry white but a round, lush wine with depth of fruit and fantastic concentration, and superb balance which make it an ideal sauvignon blanc. Starting with an aromatic flowery/fruity bouquet and finishing with clean, crisp citrus style fruit, great length and limestone/minerally tones.

Vinification is in stainless steel with controlled temperature. Traditionally the wine does not make any malolactic fermentation. Bottling only starts from July following the harvest.

The domaine of Château Favray is situated north of the village of Pouilly-sur-Loire on gentle south facing slopes. When Quentin David inherited some family farmland in 1981, all of prime exposure and within the appellation area, it didn't take him long to convert it to vineyards. Today he has 14 hectares, and his wine is now widely recognised as one of the finest examples from the appellation.
