A radiantly crisp dry white of Loire with citrus and under-ripe stone fruit ntoes. A variety more common eastern France, Switzerland and Germany, Chasselas only got footing in the one small town in the whole of the Loire valley of Pouilly-Sur-Loire. Serge Dagueneau's expression is cited by the renowned wine writer, Jancis Robinson, as being one of the few stand-outs of the appellation. High praise indeed.
From the mouth of the importer (Weygant-Metzler):
"The Chasselas, originally a table grape for Pouilly and which made fortunes for growers in the 1800s when trains were trainsporting these by the carload to Paris, remains at this domaine yielding a pretty wine, enhanced by the fact that the vinesare over 115 years old.
It is hand-harvested and always produces superb, firm skinned and sweet golden grapes. They produce a typical soft and fruity wine, characterized by hazelnut and honey flavours. Fermented and aged on the lees in thermo-regulated tanks until bottling in Spring."
