    Winemaker's Notes:

    Winemaker Francis Blanchet's vineyard is 100% flint stone—crack two rocks together and it's as if you've shot a cap gun—sweet, mineral smoke. The mouth is incredibly juicy, with suggestions of lychee gelato and Meyer lemon, a touch of herbs and metal shavings. Organically raised; low sulfur.

    "The 2007 Pouilly-Fume Silice smells of fresh lime, cassis, and fennel. Luscious and loaded with generous, juicy citrus fruit, it plays the typical role for this Blanchet cuvee: more charming, and generous earlier than the Vieilles Vignes. All the brightness and intensity of this grower's other 2007s are here though – in spades, and its chalky, saline, citric, tartly black-fruited finish literally tugs at your salivary glands."

    Rachel Mercer (9/29/2010)
    Really nice Pouilly Fume'--drunk in May, 2010 and the fruit, clarity and flinty-ness indicative of this region was still intact and highly drinkable. Serve with fish, soft cheeses, roasted chicken--or as we did; lentils! Wonderful pairing.
