Pierre Marchand & Fils Pouilly-Fume Les Loges
Eric Marchand has 9 hectares in the prime Les Loges area of Pouilly Fumé in the Loire Valley. The area is well known for the quality of the flint rich silex soils that impart a unique minerality to the wines, adding structure to the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety grown here. Eric’s top 3 cuvées are blended together to make the Les Loges, a process that adds depth and complexity to the wine.
The 2008 presents a flinty nose with fresh citrus flavours, bright fruit such as the classic gooseberry and blackcurrant, backed up with good firm crisp minerality.
