Domaine Lebrun Pouilly-Fumé

£18.50

Mineral and tense. Very long on the palate with a good acidity. Aged for 5 months on it's fine lees in both stainless steel and large, old oak barrels. Citrus fruit, minerality and smoky undertones dominate.

The Lebrun family

The first plots of “Blanc fumé” – or Sauvignon blanc, and Chasselas were planted by the Lebrun family as early as the beginning of the 19th century. The estate’s current layout was established by Fernand and Eugénie Lebrun. After farming the estate as leaseholders for a number of years, Alain and Laurent Lebrun are today the property’s growers. The estate covers around 9 hectares (22 acres) in the centre of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation, stretching over the slopes of Saint-Andelain on a typical terroir of flinty clay.
