Pouilly Fume is the lesser known neighbour of Sancerre, and what a shame that is. The wines tend to be a little fruitier, a little more fun but just as serious when it comes to winemaking.

 

Alain Cailbourdin's example is no exception. Bright, fresh and complex with an intense, stony minerality combined with the citrus, smoky flavours expected of Sauvignon Blanc in this area.
