Blanchet 'Cuvee Silice' Pouilly-Fume 2013
Wine Advocate 91
"The 2013 Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée Silice from a 1.3-hectare parcel on silex clay is by nature a shyer Pouilly that offers predominantly precise and fresh flinty aromas of freshly cut grass, field flowers and white fruits. Yielding 59 hectoliters per hectare it is a very elegant, pure and mineral wine with a piquant and grippy finish and a very good length with aromas of limes, gooseberries and just-ripe kiwis.

"The 2013 Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée Silice from a 1.3-hectare parcel on silex clay is by nature a shyer Pouilly that offers predominantly precise and fresh flinty aromas of freshly cut grass, field flowers and white fruits. Yielding 59 hectoliters per hectare it is a very elegant, pure and mineral wine with a piquant and grippy finish and a very good length with aromas of limes, gooseberries and just-ripe kiwis. Quite powerful in the end and again full of character and very authentic. Just give it two more years in the bottle." ~ SR

" This cuvee is sourced from 1 ha of 25 year old vines making for 8,000 bottle total production. The parcel comprises all of the domaine’s holdings grown on 100% Silex soils (as well as being the smallest production cuvée of the domaine). Stainless steel temperature controlled fermentation. 3 to 4 months aging on the lees with 3 lees stirrings.

Winemaker and owner Francis Blanchet's domaine consists of around 8 ha (4ha estate owned and the remainder leased and farmed 100% by the Blanchet's under fermage contract) of vines comprising many different parcels within the appellation. The unifying signature, year to year, for the Blanchet wines always tends to be: citrus, mineral and purity.

All of the vines used for his "Cuvée Silice" (the cuvée which MSW always buys) are situated in the quaint village of St. Andelain, which boasts the largest percentage of "silex" or "silice" soil in the entire Pouilly Fume appellation. Those vines are all 25 years old now, planted by Francis himself. " ~ Winery notes
