Pouilly-Fumé Vieilles Vignes 2015 - Domaine Hubert Brochard

This "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" - old vines - is definitely a very high-end Pouilly-Fumé. Aged in large oak barrels (quite unusual for this appellation), it shows an unusual roundness with toasted and buttery flavours. Very supple on the palate with beautiful and elegant aromas of white peach and citrus. This is a very complex Pouilly-Fumé, one of the most beautiful we have seen in a while.

Like the white Carisannes cuvée, this entry-level Pinot Noir is elaborated by Hubert Brochard's daughters. A simple and light-bodied Pinot Noir with flavours of red berries and violet. A perfect everyday Pinot Noir, even better if you chill it a little.

A typical and elegant Pouilly-Fumé! It exhibits fine notes of "fumé" (stony aromas), with hints of lemon, hazelnut and honey. On the palate, it is a light-bodied and refreshing white with a slight peppery finish. A truly amazing example of Pouilly-Fumé, we just loved it. Any amateur of this appellation will be thrilled with it.

Dry, crispy and fruity, this is exactly what we expect from a white Sancerre, the most famous wine from the Loire Valley. It is light to medium-bodied, the aromas of citrus and grass are excellent and intense, with the typical freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc in the mouth. Nothing to heavy, just a delicious white that would be absolutely perfect for a...

Partly aged in oak barrels, this red Sancerre is a round and fresh Pinot Noir, which clearly does not suffer the comparison from a classic Pinot Noir from Burgundy. It does have a fine structure with subtle tannins and slight oaky notes. Surprisingly complex for a red Sancerre, it is really worth a try.
