Michel Redde Pouilly-Fume La Moynerie French White Wine 750 mL

$36.99

Tasting Notes:
“A blend of terroirs in Pouilly, the  Pouilly-Fumé La Moynerie is made in a round and tranquil style – full-bodied yet not heavy. There’s a richness of fruit on the mid-palate and a ripeness, with flavors redolent of pear and some pastry notes derived from lees and partial fermentation in foudre and demi-muid (around 40%). A hint warming on the conclusion (14%) but the texture is great, the upright nature of the flint combining with the comforting clasp of the limestone soils. Fresh acidity builds on the finish.” -Rebecca Gibb MW

This wine is 100% estate grown and bottled from fruit sourced exclusively from Michel Redde’s La Moynerie vineyard. The vines are between 20 and 25 years old and grow in diverse subsoils of limestone, kimmeridgian marl, and clay with flint-a diversity that allows superb blends in every vintage. The winemaker uses temperature-controlled fermentation and ages the wine on the lees until bottling.

Description

About the producer: Michel Redde et Fils is a Loire Valley producer dating back to 1630, when François Redde was documented growing vines in Pouilly-sur-Loire. Today, Thierry Redde and his sons are the 13th and 14th generations of winemakers in the family.

In the early 1950s, Michel Redde took control of the family’s 15 acres after the death of his father. Over a decade he built the La Moynerie property, and has since expanded it to the 85 acres it is today, located on the famous Route Nationale 7 and open to customers since 1966.
