Michot Pouilly-Fumé VV 2020

$22

The twin villages of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé are the home towns of Sauvignon blanc. Here the grape takes on a distinctly mineral and citrus character. As the name suggests, the wines of Pouilly-Fumé also feature notes of smoke and gunflint, a result of the soils’ high flint content. Our producer here is Frederic Michot, a small family vigneron with no other US importer and excellent wines.

The 2020 old-vine “Cuvée Sainte Clara” has the same grapefruit, but it’s drier and more focused; and its clay/limestone soils add an additional level of complexity. Look for more concentration and more sophisticated fruit.
