Francis Blanchet Pouilly Fume has a pretty expressive nose with aromas of citrus, gooseberry, elderflower and hint of passion fruit. The taste is very classic Pouilly-Fumé with citrus and minerality and a fresh, crisp finish. It is a classic example of Sauvignon Blanc that has plenty of smoke, crushed stones and racy fruit. A truly great vintage with great acid, perfectly healthy and ripe fruit that make it a marvel today and give it the potential to age for years.
