Domaine LANDRAT-GUYOLLOT Pouilly-Fume "La Rambarde - Des Cuvees Creatives" 2018
Wine Region: Loire-Valley - France
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting notes: This Cuvee is a great classic of the Pouilly Fume appellation. It results from a blend of different soils (marl, limestone and flint).
With its straw yellow colour with green reflections, the Pouilly Fume "La Rambarde" becomes desirable as soon as the nose approaches, where we breathe a swirl of aromas typical of Sauvignon Blanc, with notable notes of boxwood and broom. The palate, with aromas of citrus (grapefruit, lemon) and blackcurrant, is lively and well-balanced.
About the winery:
Originally a Gallo-Roman farm, 'Pauliaca Villa', the Pouilly vineyard has existed since the 5th century. It developed considerably under the Benedictines during the Middle Ages (notably by the Prieure de La Charite-sur-Loire, on the 'Route de Compostelle') and further developed thanks to a boom in commerce starting in the 16th century when the Loire became navigable… the proximity of Paris helped make a name for Pouilly-sur-Loire (Chasselas grapes) and Pouilly Fume (Sauvignon Blanc). Like a gem harmoniously set in the heart of the luminous 'Val de Loire Nivernais' countryside, around the St-Andelain hill, Domaine Landrat-Guyollot is where the many faces of wines finely chiselled by terroirs as varied as they are exceptional come to light.
