Pouilly-Fumé Grande Cuvée des Edvins, Cuvée Prestige 2015

Pouilly Fume
  • 75cl bottle

Delicate and complex nose with notes of hazelnut and exotic fruits. Fresh attack full of liveliness and fullness as well pineapple and hazenut notes. Nice minerality with a lot of freshness and finesse.

Vineyards

The vines are planted on soil comprised of clay and flint stones. On average the vines are 30 years old and are planted in a 2.4ha vineyard in the village of St Andelain. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.

Vintage

Warm, dry summer. Low yields but excellent quality in most areas.

Winemaking

Vinification and ageing for a minimum of 12 months takes place in Joseph Mellot's centuries old cellars in the heart of Sancerre. The wines are stirred regularly to bring the lees back into suspension, to impart more character. After gentle filtering, the wine is bottled. Around 3,000 bottles are produced each year.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
  • Salads and Picnics
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
A great match for prawn risotto or a bouillabaisse.
