Domaine Fournier Père & Fils pursues its mission of revealing the terroirs of our beautiful land for sommeliers and wine lovers.
Our ‘Terroirs Selection’ range reveals the nuances and the style of 4 Terroirs curated from our finest Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé vineyards. They easily distinguish themselves by their aromatic intensity and their complexity.
Known as a ‘late maturity’ terroir, the grapes are harvested in early Autumn (October). The grapes are delicately pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to the fermentation, the terroir expression is maximized by an extended contact between the clear juice and the fine lees. A cold temperature fermentation ensures a slow fermentation that reveals the complexity. The aging on fine lees for 8 months refines the style and magnifies the balance.
This Terroir Cuvée is a perfect match with a smoked salmon or a risotto with prawns. Its assertive character makes it also the natural companion of a Crottin de Chavignol.
Cette cuvée séduit par sa robe Or aux reflets verts.
Au nez, c’est une association d’arômes de groseille à maquereaux et de fruits exotiques.
La bouche confirme ses promesses avec sa finesse ciselée et son intensité.
93 points / A solid white with sliced and dried lemons, minerals and apples on the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied and dense, yet fresh and structured. Drink now.
93 points / A flinty, mineral texture gives this wine a tight, clenched character. While the green fruits are now mature and softened, the serious texture is likely to remain. This is an impressive wine for food, rich while definitely structured. Drink now.
90 points / The name of this wine sums up the nature of much of the soil in Pouilly Fumé: clay and chalk. This wine has weight and now has maturity, with green fruits morphing into almond and spice flavors. Drink now.
