Pouilly and Sancerre are two wine regions on the banks of the Loire in France, internationally known for their white wines. Both AOC’s (Appellation Origine Controlee) work exclusively with Sauvignon Blanc and each offer a very distinct style and expression of the Sauv Blanc variety. Jacques chose Pouilly for it’s refinement, elegance, superb complexity and the strong minerality expressed by Sauvignon Blanc when grown on this specific soil, which has varied geology combining clay, flint, limestone and sand. This wine is fully barrel fermented and aged in oak for several months.
