Pouilly-Fumé - Les Cornets

Born on the limestone-clay slopes of Pouilly (composed of Kimmeridgian marl), these wines get their power from the terroir.

A little slower to open than wines from limestone slopes, they obtain their full expression after a year of aging. We discover aromas of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia flower), followed by nuances (according to the vintage) of black currant buds, pineapples or white peaches finishing on clean mineral notes sometimes described as "gun flint".

After a few years, the aromas often evolve toward quince or mango. Some vintages have developed aromas of mushrooms, such as the 1996 which had a delightful truffle bouquet.

On the palate, the expression is virile, powerful and long.

This is a Pouilly-Fumé for those who appreciate full, rich wines.
