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.

This Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc takes advantage of 10th generation of winemaking experience of our family. The juice ferments in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks at cool temperature in order to have longer fermentation and more intense aromas. The wine then matures for 3 months on its fine lees before bottling.

Tasting Notes: Remarkably aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. On the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity characteristic of grapes harvested at good maturity. Citrus, apple and gooseberry aromas with hints of passion fruit are often found in this lively and bright wine.

Pairing: Here is an excellent aperitif that is also outstanding with fish, seafood and certain white meats. Enjoy Petit Bourgeois with a halibut steak in lemon butter, a kingfish carpaccio, some grilled white fish or a Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese.
