La Poussie Sancerre Blanc

2005

Sancerre

La Poussie, jewel of the Sancerre vineyards, is a voluptuous, aromatic wine.

Of all the centuries-old growths which dominate the majestic river Loire, La Poussie is the one whose reputation remains unblemished.

Its origins can be traced back to the Capetians, as witnessed by a document dating from around 1040.

Nearer our time, Honoré de Balzac wrote the following about these Sancerre vineyards : “the country possesses several growths of generous wines quite similar to the wines of Burgundy, which are rapidly consumed in the Parisian cafés.”

La Poussie produces a light, fruity, dry and vigorous Sauvignon Blanc, infused with the clay and limestone soil.

The exceptional vineyard site with its natural amphitheater of an almost perfect semi-circle of 180° make it one of the most unique in the world.
