Francis Blanchet Pouilly Fume Cuvee Silice 2020
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Pouilly-Fume|
Blanchet's Pouilly-Fumé is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and has a nice balance of ripeness and crisp acidity with vibrant citrus fruit and a clean, mineral-driven finish. Drinking like a sunny summer day, this wine is easy to drink on its own or make a great food wine.
The 2020 Pouilly-Fumé Silice is a fresh and focused style with attractive phenolic character. There's a fine line of sinew and refreshment here, creating a sensation of precision. However, at 14.5%, there's a bit of warmth on the finish.
