Domaine de Bel Air Cuvée des Papillons 2020

Pouilly-Fume AOC

A beautifully poised Pouilly-Fumé from young winemaker Katia Mauroy. Grapes from this 13th-generation family estate used to be sold until Katia took charge. Now it’s one of the appellation’s most exciting domaines. An intense, flinty, citrus white.

This exciting family domaine – wine growers since 1635 – is today in the hands of the 13th generation, Katia Mauroy. As soon as Katia was handed the reins in the 1990s, she modernised the wine cellar and took back the winemaking. Their 15 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc are planted on the high slopes surrounding Saint Andelain, facing south and southeast, with optimum exposure to sun. Grapes are grown on three soils – Kimmeridgian marl for minerality, clay limestone for a fruity style, and sandy limestone for fruit, floral notes and minerality. This gives Katia a wide palette of flavours from which to blend her wines, which are highly recommended by Decanter, Guide Hachette and From a top vintage this is a true classic.
