Tasting Notes

Floral and herbaceous, this is a concentrated wine with great elegance, complexity and power. Really special!

Producer details

Robert Poirier established "La Renardière" close to a small wood inhabited by foxes hence the name. He was a pioneer with a passion for modernism and a firm believer in the potential of Pouilly-Fumé. He expanded the estate over the years and opened a wine bar "Au Pouilly", in Nevers. Eugène Bouchié bought a vineyard from the neighbouring Château, on the same Saint Andelain hill, where the soils are composed of flinty clay and limestone. At the beginning of the last century, their children's' marriage gave birth to the present domain. The blending of these two terroirs gives the "La Renardière" cuvées their complexity. Having studied oenology in Burgundy, Arnaud Bouchié returned to the family property and now oversees the winemaking.

In the vineyard

The grapes are sourced from 30 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines grown on the hill of St Andelain in a mix of Silex and Kimmerigian clay soils. The individual parcels are vinified separately.

In the winery

The grapes are gently pressed pneumatically. Prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the must is naturally clarified by cold stabilisation and some of the grapes are macerated on the skins for a short period to maximise flavour complexity. Either wild or selected yeasts are used, depending upon the conditions - indigenous yeasts are believed to add more character. The fermentation is cool and slow over 3 weeks and the wine remains on the fine lees. The gravity fed cellar is on two levels and is fully temperature controlled.

Food Recommendations

Best served chilled with shellfish, grilled white fish or chicken and soft cheeses or on its own as an aperitif.
