Domaine de Pouy Ugni Blanc 2011, France
60% Ugni Blanc, 40% Colombard
Yves Grassa, the proprietor of Domaine de Pouy, has invested intelligently in modern vinification equipment in order to assure that this exuberant, super aromatic, light-bodied dry white is the standard to which others are held. The estate is located in the foothills of Pyrénées, near the appellations of Madiran and Jurançon, about two hours southwest of Bordeaux. The cold fermentation of Ugni Blanc from the Bas-Armagnac region captures vibrant aromatics and guards freshness. The wine has a penetrating floral green apple fragrance, and is loaded with refreshingly crisp and flavorful fruit. Domaine de Pouy has consistently been one of our finest values, and above all - is simply delicious! • 60% Ugni Blanc (this is Trebbiano in Italy) • 40% Colombard • The wines are made using skin contact and kept cold for four to six hours in order to extract the maximum aromatics and preserve bright fruit flavors. • Blended & bottled fresh around the first of February every year.
Pouy has been a perrenial Robert Parker favorite for the last 20 years!!
