Pouilly-Fumé takes its name from Pouilly-sur-Loire, the heart of the AOC, and 'Fumé', literally 'smoked', referring to the local name of the sauvignon blanc, 'blanc fumé'. The term fumé here refers to the ash-grey color of the leaves of sauvgon blanc. The Pouilly-Fumé wines are generally dry, fresh and balanced, floral and fruity, with a striking minerality in which 'silex' (flint) can often be recognized. The vines went into the ground in 1991 and Domaine Treuillet was founded four years later. The small domain of Sébastien Treuillet in Tracy-sur-Loire is known for the purity and refinement of its wines.
Sébastien Treuillet bought 3.5 hectares in Tracy sur Loire and 0.35 in Pouilly. His Pouilly-Fumé is a textbook example of finesse and drinkability. Delicious, pristine wines with a striking 'brilliance' and a dusty but not exaggerated aroma. A feast for the taste buds. Because light, elegant and typical of the Sauvignon grape. A find, this mini domain!
In the glass the wine has a pale straw yellow color with a wonderful open and exotic scent, smoky, a hint of grassiness, elderflowers, asparagus, flint, freshly cut grass. The taste is open, nice acidity and elegance, lots of freshness and juice, nervousness, minerality, tasty. It is therefore a widely applicable wine. Nevertheless, we can strongly recommend it with lightly smoked fish or with fresh to semi-ripe goat's cheese (chavignol, selles-sur-cher).
