2021 Gerard Fiou Just Fiou Sauvignon Blanc
Domaine Gérard Fiou is a French family business in the eastern Loire region, founded by the ancestors of Gérard Fiou and taken over by the friendly Bourgeois family after his retirement. This family is a leading maker of Sancerre and Pouilly wines: their expertise does the Domaine Gerard Fiou wine house no harm! Wine has been made in this area since the 15th century, monks have helped develop viticulture further. The terroir of the vineyard of Domaine Gérard Fiou has long been considered too difficult for viticulture, now all winegrowers in the area agree that this is the most interesting terroir of Sancerre AOP.
The domain of 24 hectares has belonged to the Fiou family for several generations. The vineyards are planted on the particularly rich 'silex' soil in the vicinity of Saint-Satur. This exceptional terroir provides optimal ripening of the grapes by storing the sun's heat and releasing this heat evenly at night. The domain is completely organic under the leadership of Gerard Fiou and has been officially certified since 2010.
The Gerard Fiou Just Fiou Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely refreshing and beautiful wine from the Loire with dusty aromas of citrus fruit, green apples and boxwood. The taste has a beautiful texture with some complexity and ends with a delicious juicy finish.
