F. blanchet Pouilly-fume cuvee silice 2022
The 2022 F. Blanchet Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée Silice is an elegant white wine from the Pouilly-Fumé region in the Loire Valley, France. Made exclusively from the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety, this wine showcases a gorgeously pure and bright profile. It exhibits a brilliant bouquet that includes notes of lemon zest, nectarine, jasmine tea, and quince, offering a delightful aromatic experience. The Cuvée Silice is noted for its refreshing and mineral-rich qualities, characteristics that are highly regarded in white Loire wines, especially those made from Sauvignon Blanc in the Pouilly Fumé and Sancerre appellations. This vintage is particularly praised, with some considering it one of the finest Pouilly-Fumés ever produced by Francis Blanchet. The wine also features prominent tree fruit notes, with lavors like green apple, pear, and peach, adding to its complexity and appeal. These fruit notes contribute to the wine's freshness and make it a versatile choice for various pairings. The Pouilly-Fumé appellation, created in 1937 originally as Blanc Fumé de Pouilly, is known for producing wines with distinctive minerality and aromatic complexity, qualities that the Cuvée Silice exemplifies.
