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.
"Impeccable Pouilly Fumé. Slatey gooseberry fresh. Pristine"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
This exciting family domaine – wine growers since 1635 – is today in the hands of the 13th generation, Kate Mauroy. As soon as Kate 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 southeast and so 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 Kate a wide palette of flavours from which to blend her wines, which are highly recommended by Decanter, Guide Hachette and jancisrobinson.com. From a 5 star vintage this is a fine Pouilly Fumé.

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
