About This Item

Overview: This Pouilly-Fumé comes from the chalky-clay hills of Saint-Andelain, peak of the appellation where winegrowing dates back to the roman era. It’s terroir made of hard calcareous rock gives Pouilly-Fumé its minerality, finesse, its rather fresh and lively character and its name. En Travertin is in fact a form of limestone formed by sedimentation.

After a gentle pressing and 24 hour settling of the juice, the wine ferments in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks a t 1 5 – 1 8 ° C . These long fermentations give more intense and delicate aromas. The wine, then, needs five months of maturation on its fine lees at cool temperature before bottling.

Tasting Notes: “En Travertin” is concentrated and very fruity while also being stylish and elegant. Sauvignon grape variety is the most dominant aspect of this charming wine. It displays its elegance, fruitiness – white fruits, light citrus – and is very persistent on the palate.

Pairing: This wine is a marvellous match with shellfish, fish, white meats and goat cheese. For example a Turbot with spinach and Feta cheese, or a Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese with toasted sesame seeds.
