Domaine LANDRAT-GUYOLLOT Pouilly-Fume "Gemme Oceane - Des Cuvees Exquises" 2017
Wine Region: Loire-Valley - France
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting notes: All in elegance and finesse, it is a refined wine, eminently feminine which offers an aromatic palette of great subtlety: fragrant brazier of white flowers (acacia, elderberry, hawthorn), and fruit ( grapefruit, vine peach). With its seductive citrus aromas (pomelo, clementine), the palate offers good balance and suppleness well balanced by the freshness sought in Pouilly-Fumes.
About the winery: Originally a Gallo-Roman farm, 'Pauliaca Villa', the Pouilly vineyard has existed since the 5th century. It developed considerably under the Benedictines during the Middle Ages (notably by the Prieure de La Charite-sur-Loire, on the 'Route de Compostelle') and further developed thanks to a boom in commerce starting in the 16th century when the Loire became navigable… the proximity of Paris helped make a name for Pouilly-sur-Loire (Chasselas grapes) and Pouilly Fume (Sauvignon Blanc). Like a gem harmoniously set in the heart of the luminous 'Val de Loire Nivernais' countryside, around the St-Andelain hill, Domaine Landrat-Guyollot is where the many faces of wines finely chiselled by terroirs as varied as they are exceptional come to light.
