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.

The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit purity and flavour; it was then aged on fine yeast lees for three months. Lees stirring over this time allows the wine to stabilise naturally, enabling us to fine the wine only once before a light, non-sterile filtration. This extended lees contact also helps the wine to gain roundness and texture.

Tasting Notes: Notes of peach and nectarine are paired with elderflower and soft gunflint minerality. Textural, with zingy acidity and a flinty, mineral nuance this wine is both fresh and concentrated.

Pairing: Can be tasted on its own, with fresh seafood or with mixed salads, grilled mussels, green mussels with garlic and parsley …
