Les Deux Cailloux

Pouilly-Fumé AOP

Grown on the 3 central communes of the appellation: Tracy sur Loire, Pouilly sur Loire and St Andelain, our vines benefit from the intense luminosity and the mild climate, tempered by the proximity of the Loire river. The perfect alliance of the different terroirs, the late fruit picking and a mastered fine lees ageing process makes a benchmark cuvée.

Appellations Cuvées

Blessed with vineyards spanning in 8 communes of the appel- lation, over the years our cuvée ‘Les Belles Vignes’ has become a benchmark in Sancerre. Nested in the heart of the Verdigny village, Domaine Fournier Père et Fils, actively promotes the Sancerre wines worldwide.

Sancerre is the most prestigious and renowned appellation of the Loire. Early texts dating from the Middle Ages already mention the Sancerre vineyard. Nowadays, the appellation covers 2900 hectares located on the Loire left bank, on the Eastern side of city of Bourges.

The hills are often very steep, vineyards benefit from many microclimates thanks to the highly variable expositions. Known as the international capital of Sauvignon Blanc, its inimitable style is born from the magic al- liance of these varietals and the 3 unique soils of the appellation: Silex, Caillottes and Terres Blanches.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Planted on great terroirs, thriving on a mild climate brought by the Loire River, the Sauvignon fully delivers its incredible potential. Our mission is to ensure that each vineyard reach their full ripening potential. Harmonious vineyard practices enable us to pick great quality grapes resulting in minimal winemaking. The temperature controlled fermentation is followed by a 6-12 month fine lees ageing (with weekly batonnage). The wines are bottled in Spring after a slight filtration.

FOOD PAIRING

The ‘Les Deux Cailloux’ cuvée is a delight with fish in sauce and delicate sea food. Our Pouilly Fumé shines with your gourmet appetizers such as tapas and/or gambas ‘piri-piri’.
