Viognier & Sauvignon blanc reminiscent of Pouilly Fumé
40-year-old vines and beyond ...
Louis Marie Teisserenc may well be called a visionary. As early as 1980, he was the first to plant Sauvignon grapes in the Languedoc. A whole process preceded this. His good friend and winemaker at the famous Domaine de Ladoucette in Pouilly-Fumé, Joël André, advised him on specific clones that are also used in the Loire region.
Now, after almost 40 years, François Teisserenc, the son of Louis Marie, makes an overwhelming quality from the now old vines. A limited part (15%) of the grapes harvested at night yeasts in small oak casks and the rest, after soaking for 48 hours with the skin of the grape, in large stainless steel tanks. By the way, this happens at a slightly higher temperature than usual, which creates a more intense Sauvignon aroma.
In homage to the important role of the Pouilly-Fumé winemaker in the late 1970s, François gives this exquisite, slightly oak-matured, dry white wine the name Fumé Blanc. With a nod to the top cuvées in the famous Loire region, which are made in a similar way. Of course, this Languedoc-Sauvignon has more roundness due to the warmer weather in the south, but that is an advantage for many lovers of this grape.
