The Pouilly-Fumé Tradition by Serge Dagueneau arises from a selection of vineyards cultivated with Sauvignon Blanc, a variety renamed by Robert Mondavi for dry wines from these Blanc-Fumé grapes, in honor of the great white wines of the Loire with the Pouilly name -Fume and its dense morning smoke like smoke.

Following the harvest that takes place between the end of September and the first week of October, the grapes are immediately pressed immediately, then vinified in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18-20 ° C. The wine therefore remains to refine on the fine lees until bottling.

The color is bright straw yellow, this Pouilly-Fumé opens to the nose, expressing a wide range of exotic fruits, including passion fruit, lychee and mango, together with intriguing mineral nuances characteristic of the terroir and floral aromas of acacia and boxwood.

White for the whole meal, it is particularly suitable for seafood, white meats and fresh cheeses. Ideal as an aperitif.
