The Pouilly Fumé grape is derived from the sauvignon blanc, with egg-shaped berries in tight clusters resembling tit’s eggs. When mature, these berries are covered in a smoke-coloured, grey bloom, which explains why we, Pouilly wine growers, talk amongst ourselves about Blanc Fumé (smoked white) to describe the sauvignon grape or wines produced from it.
The word fumé also refers to the incomparable, universally-recognized aromas and bouquet (or fumet smokey aroma the famous gun flint aroma, released by rubbing two flints together), which comes from the outstanding land of Pouilly sur Loire vineyards.
It is here, in Pouilly sur Loire, that the Sauvignon grape develops unrivalled complexity and aromatic palate. Dry, fruity, white, Pouilly Fumé is full-bodied and reflects the inimitable taste of the Pouilly land in its bottle thanks to its "flinty" aromas.
The fine Pouilly wines are thanks to the constant labours of many generations of wine producers.
