A highly-skilled vigneron, Jean-Marie Berthier has been crafting minerally yet fruity Pouilly-Fumé wines for years alongside his Sancerre and Coteaux du Giennois wines.  He is helped by his sons Clément and Florian who spent their first years in the trade working for some of the most prestigious estates in Burgundy and New Zealand.  Together, with their father’s knowledge of the land and tradition and their application of the best winemaking practices they have crafted wines that will be enjoyed by both traditionalists and novices alike.

 

 

 

 

 ABOUT POUILLY-FUME

portugal2-2

 

 

Pouilly-Fumé is one of the Loire wine region's most famous appellations. The “Fumé” in the title actually means 'smoky' and refers to the gunflint character of the appellation's Sauvignon Blanc. There is a reliable fruity element in almost all Pouilly-Fumé wines. This tends towards gooseberry and citrus characters, which work in harmony with the wines' high acidity, and complement the minerality rather than dominating it.
