This is a beautifully poised Pouilly Fumé from young winemaker Kate Mauroy. Grapes from this 13th generation family estate were sold until Kate took charge. Now it’s one of the appellation’s most exciting domaines. Intense, flinty, citrusy white.
"Pure, classic Pouilly-Fumé. Concentrated and mouthwatering but full of bright citrus. Tight and fine"
Julia Harding for 2015 jancisrobinson.com
Wine growers since 1635, this exciting family domaine is today in the hands of the 13th generation, Kate Mauroy. As soon as she took charge 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 south-east and giving optimum exposure to sun. The Sauvignon is grown on three soils – Kimmeridgian marl for minerality, clay limestone for a fruity style and sandy limestone for fruit, floral notes and minerality. With these, Kate has a pallete of flavours to blend from. Her wines have been highly recommended by Decanter, Guide Hachette and jancisrobinson.com. For lovers of fine Sauvignon, this Pouilly Fumé is a must.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
