Domaine du Bouchot - Pouilly-Fumé "Orange Bio" 2021
A family estate since 1966, Domaine du Bouchot is 10 hectares in size and has been crafting wine for decades, with the latest owner being Antoine Gouffier. Taking over Domaine du Bouchot in 2018, the young winemaker and his wife have brought great energy and modern views to the traditional region of Pouilly-Fumé. On the right bank of the Loire Valley they champion Sauvignon Blanc in their wines.
From the “normal white” color in the glass, you might not guess that this was an orange wine, but once you start on it you’ll get it. Concentrated bead of red-peach and spicy flavors and plenty of drive though the medium-bodied palate. Structured and slightly tannic, as befits the category. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Lots of character. Hard not to like this. Enjoy now. 92 pts, James Suckling. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
