Starting in 1950, Paul Fournier started with 2 hectares of vineyards and a desire to make his own wine. It took 9 years, but his dream was realized! By 1990, with the help of his two sons, Claude and Jacques, the Domaine Fournier Père et Fils extended to 60 hectares located in revered areas of Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume and Menetou-Salon. Today, the winery is run by the Villebois family and their team, who arrived on the scene in 2015 and purchased the estate. Domaine Fournier wines have since received international acclaim.
There is an emphasis on creating quality wines with care and patience. Respecting the land through responsible farming practices, utilizing small yields and allowing gravity to slowly release the grapes' juice to provide an exceptional product. The Fournier wines can be found in some of the most prestigious places in Paris, New York, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. Serve at 8-10 degrees Celsius. Drink now or up to 2 years.
This crystal clear, slightly golden core with just the smallest tinge of green exudes aromas of white peach and nectarine stone fruits. After a few minutes in the glass, white flower notes emerge accompanied by an elusive green note reminiscent of fresh-cut grass.
We are delighted by the ripe fruit notes of white peach, nectarine, pear and melon that greet us on the first sip. There's a slightly tart and citrusy grapefruit lift complemented by hints of honeysuckle. Certainly, a slightly warmer style of Sauvignon Blanc, the medium body and soft acidity, is pleasant, refreshing and leaves us craving more. This wine won't last long among friends so, we won't tell if you keep it all to yourself.
The classic pairing for Sauvignon Blanc so close to the Sancerre region - goat cheese! Although, we'd be happy to enjoy this wine on its own as well.
