Pouilly-Fumé Le Troncsec 2019
This single vineyard Pouilly Fumé shows delicate mineral notes balanced with flavours of mango and citrus.
Le Troncsec is a single vineyard of 9.5 hectares, located in the commune of Saint Laurent l'Abbaye. The vines are planted on soils primarily composed of Kimmeridgian limestone marl. This is typified by a stoney surface and clay deeper down. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.
The 2019 was overall a good vintage in Central Loire, despite the frost episodes in early spring. The summer was very hot, with the heat stress impacting the overall yields but the remaining fruit quality was outstanding, yielding balanced and harmonious wines.
Following on from cold static settling, the fermentation takes place at low temperatures in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
