Régis Minet "Pouilly Fumé" Vieilles Vignes
Description: Aromas hint at Lemon grass and granny smith apple with a flinty minerality. On the palate, a bright beam of acidity leads with wet stone, lemon-lime, and salt water following. There is an acute intensity to this wine that makes it pitch perfect. Pouilly-sur-Loire produces one of the greatest Sauvignon Blancs in the world. Régis' vineyards sit at 750 feet, surrounded by hills on the far east of the Loire River, and centered proudly on the prized limestone and clay of the Kimmeridgian chain. The scattered flint in these vineyards imbues the wines with a character quite distinctive from the neighboring village of Sancerre.
