Henri Bourgeois La Demoiselle de Bourgeois Pouilly-Fume
Country: France, Pouilly-Fume
Tasting Notes: Like a “Grand Cru”, the terroir of Pouilly gives a richness and a complex aromatic palate to this wine. The lively acidity and the mineral notes (chalky and flinty) are balanced by delicious flavours of citrus, pear, quince and green plum fruits but also white flowers and white peppers. It shows a very nice persistence on the finish. With its structure La Demoiselle may age in bottle for 8 to 10 years.
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Pairing: This wines is a great match with fine cuisine. A Steamed skate with spinach in a tangy sauce would do perfectly. Or some filleted farm hen breasts in su-preme sauce with roasted apple will convinced those who prefer a white meat. A plate of cheese would also thrill the gourmet.
