Tasting Notes

An absolute classic Pouilly-Fume from a small domaine with 4 hectares of vines that was converted from cereal farming as recently as 1991. Bright and intense gooseberry, citrus, and white flower notes lead to a tense and slightly smokey palate.

S�bastien Treuillet is the first in his farming family to be a vigneron. Previously they have all been cereal producers. Indeed S�bastien still looks after 140 hectares of cereals in addition to his 12 hectares of vines. The majority of his vines are in the Pouilly-Fum� appellation but he also has 3.5 ha in the Coteaux du Giennois and 2 hectares of vin de pays.�'I started to get into vines and wine when I was around 15 as I had a friend in Sancerre whose family were vignerons and I would go and stay there,' S�bastien explains. 'After working in Sancerre for Pierre D�zat (Verdigny) and then the Champaults (Champtin) I started up on my own in 1991.'�He has a number of different parcels on different soils � argile-kimmeridgean, sandy soils as well as some caillottes � limestone dominated, with very little soil. On the argile-kimmeridgean soils S�bastien is unusual in using the Courson-Royat pruning system, which he finds keeps the yields down, whereas on his more sandy soils he has the Guyot system, which is classic in this area
