This is a classic Sauvignon Blanc in every sense. A crisp and dry wine with slightly flinty gooseberry fruit with a clean, mouthwatering finish. From the village of Pouilly-sur-Loire, the Fumé in the name is from the flinty soil, which gives the wine a gun-smoke aroma. The Blondelet family vinify each terroir separately, and their Villa Paulus is from Kimmeridgian marl (white clay and fossilized shells), giving good minerality. The richness comes from time on lees. Vines are between 25 and 40 years old. Low in sulphites.

Winemaker

Jean-Michel Masson

"14 generations of wine producers can be traced through the Blondelet family tree. Such deep rooted heritage is a fundamental reason behind the quality of Domaine Masson Blondelet as Jean-Michel Masson and his family have high personal reputations for quality to uphold. They make, bottle and sell their wine from their 21Ha estate in the heart of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation. They are on south and south–east facing slopes, and enjoy a micro climate caused by the river Loire which protects them from extreme variations in temperature. Today Jean-Michel’s son Pierre-Francois is taking over the reigns in the winery while his daughter, Melanie looks after the sales and administration side of things. From our point of view, it looks like this family affair is set to last a few generations into the future."
