Domaine de Bel Air Cuvée des Papillons 2018

Pouilly-Fume AOC

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.

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.
