Sébastien Treuillet: 2010 Pouilly-Fumé
This Pouilly-Fumé is from a small producer from near Tracy-sur-Loire, who I believe has just three hectares of vines – some in the PF appellation as well as some in the nearby Coteaux-du-Giennois.
This 2010 is best not drunk too chilled otherwise its weight and length will be hidden. It has a complex and aromatic nose – some gooseberry, grapefruit and other ripe citric notes – allied with weight and length. Certainly a well-made Pouilly-Fumé.
I plan to be in Sancerre/Pouilly towards the end of August, so may well get the opportunity to visit Sébastien Treuillet. Although the address is Tracy-sur-Loire, Fonteille is someway from this very attractive little hamlet beside the Loire as it is actually to the east of the autoroute A77.
Address: 12 Route de Boisfleury, Fontenille, 58150 Tracy-sur-Loire.
This sample was provided by the RSJ Restaurant, where I'm a consultant. The RSJ have recently started to list this wine.
