Domaine de Bel Air Cuvée des Papillons 2022

Pouilly-Fume AOC

A remarkably fine, intense and citrusy Pouilly-Fumé from young winemaker Katia Mauroy at her 13th-generation family estate. This is today one of the appellation’s most exciting domaines and 2022 is a delicious ripe vintage. A zesty, flinty 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 cellar and took back the winemaking (previously grapes had been sold off). 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 fruit, and sandy limestone for aroma, fruit again and freshness. This gives Katia a wide palette of flavours from which to blend. Her wines are highly recommended by Decanter, Guide Hachette and A true classic with seafood.
