Francis Blanchet, Pouilly-Fumé, Silice, 2019

 From a small block on very flinty soils in the heart of the appellation, this is an intense and ageworthy wine. Smelling of citrus peel and hawthorn blossom, it’s intensely grapefruity. A splendidly long, steely finish, with a peppery sense of minerality, indicates its class. Now-2023

Year in, year out Francis Blanchet and his family create a wine that is so true to the appellation, and that really displays the illusive suggestion of gunflint, especially after a year or so in bottle. The estate grows 100% Sauvignon Blanc on 9.5 hectares covering Kimeridgian clays, flint and limestone.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
