Bouchot Pouilly Fume
Bouchot Pouilly Fume 2011 is a beautiful example of this classic genre. It has all the racey crisp freshness and fruitiness of a 100% Sauvignon. It does have a little weight that makes it different from its neighbour Sancerre. There are tastes and aromas of gooseberry and guavas! A very easy to drink wine and being very light in sulphites is easy on you too.
The Domaine de Bouchot is in Saint Andelain, the heart of the Pouilly sur Loire. The 10 hectares of vineyards are South-west facing and organically farmed. They produce dry, fruity white wines expressing the richness and subtlety of the land.
Grower: Domaine de Bouchot.
Vinification: harvested naturally, fermented at 12 to 13 C in stainless steel tanks.

As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
