Pouilly Fumé, Ch. de L’Abbaye de St. Laurent

August 9, 2017

Sauvignon Blanc

The 14ha vineyard of Chateau de L’Abbaye de St. Laurent borders the famous monastery of the same name and has been in the Morlat family since 1850. Today the two brothers Patrice and Pascal manage the estate with respect for both tradition and modernity. The land is gently undulating, well drained and has all of the famous 3 types of soil necessary for great Sauvignon Blanc -crushed crustacean shells (petite huite), flint and limestone!
A wonderful fresh wine with aromas of an English country garden but also with that unique “flinty smokiness” that can only be Pouilly Fumé . Notes of white flowers, apricots and grapefruit wrap around the crisp mineral core and when all is in balance takes you for a very long ride!
A very versatile wine to drink chilled on its own, or with almost anything that is not too overpowering but especially as the French would say “drink and enjoy with anything good from the sea”.
