Appellation
Pouilly Fume is a small wine district in central France’s Loire Valley famous for its crisp, aromatic white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. For most of its history it was associated with red wine production. It wasn’t until the 1970’s with the increased popularity of white wines in Parisian bistros that Pouilly Fume became synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc. The region has a cool continental climate, so the grapes have high acidity and crisp flavors. It is generally fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks without any oak influence. Enjoy chilled and when it’s young and fresh.

Estate
In the heart of the Valley of the Kings, in the municipality of Pouillé near the medieval city of Montrichard, the estate vineyards stretch over 40 hectares of vines in the AOC Touraine area. Backed by ancestral know-how, the Maison is one of the best terroirs of the Loire Valley region. Since 1905, four successive generations have perfected their wine-growing knowledge in order to enable the family business to strive for excellence and to offer its customers exceptionally high quality wines. The vineyard has AOC Touraine vines located on the hillsides of the Cher and the valleys of Loir-et-Cher, which are the best of the appellation's varieties. The over 20 year old vines benefit from an excellent western orientation, on clay-limestone soil, ideal for growing Sauvignon Blanc in particular.

Vinification
This wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks; it is then aged for 5 months on its lees which adds complexity to this aromatic Sauvignon Blanc.
About La Craie
Vouvary La Craie is 100% Chenin Blanc custom cuvée from hillside parcels just outside the village of Vouvray. Produced from young vines (15- 25 years old), this bottling is almost always a light demi-sec (8-12 grams of residual sugar). A delicious introduction to Chenin Blanc! It is assembled in Vouvray, sees no wood, is bottled fresh and young, and is designed to offer the striking crispness that one expects from the Loire but with a very small amount of residual sugar for an added layer of complexity.
