Pouilly Fumé L’Emotion Authentique, JFV

£23.99

A new vintage sees this stylish Loire white return after an outage of too many months, the 2021 being a victim of its understandable popularity.

It hails from vineyards in Pouilly-sur-Loire on the right bank of France’s longest river. It’s traditionally vinified on its lees for 6 months in stainless steel tanks and is notable for its elegance and minerality. The lively bouquet is of tropical fruits, white flowers and hazelnuts. In the mouth it’s quite full but supple with a certain saline quality, and of course there’s crisp Sauvignon acidity with a touch of smokiness (hence ‘fumé’). The producer recommends trying this with salmon, Brussels sprouts and Pouilly-Fumé sauce (is that really the best use of the wine?). Or with broccoli and asparagus pasta. Whatever you choose, this is a wonderful food wine.

Jacques Frelin

We first met Jacques Frelin In Paris in 1987 and this pioneer of the French organic wine movement has been our most important supplier almost from that moment. Originally from the Vendée region he worked initially with his now ex-wife at Domaine de Clairac, then with Louis Andrieu and Olivier Azan. He now runs the operation single-handedly but with the backing of his old friend Frédéric Lachaux.
Organic vineyards represented – 40 hectares. Organic since 1983.
