"Complex nose, soft and attractive on the palate, green fruits."
David Whelehan, Food and Wine Magazine

"This couldn`t be anything other than a Sauvignon Blanc - the aromas alone tell the tale. A well-made wine, it has a pungent nettle nose, green fruit flavours and a decent length. It will keep for about two years and is a good match for goats` cheese."
The Best of Wine in Ireland

"Masson-Blondelet is based in Pouilly-sur-Loire, just across the river from the hilltop town of Sancerre. Fresh fruit underpinned by a firm mineral character, clean and lasting finish."
Raymond Blake, Food and Wine

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."
