A very appropriately named wine, this is pretty well nearly Pouilly-Fumé. But back when the AOC was created, the previous landowners chose not to pay for all of their land to be classified. The vines used for this cuvée are actually directly adjacent to those that go towards Pouilly-Fumé production giving us an almost identical wine but a fraction of the price! A brilliant buy.

'À Peu Près' Sauvignon Blanc 2020
  • Ample citrus fruit and green fruit - think grapefruit sorbet and gooseberry compote. 
  • A discernible chalky, smoky flintiness that comes from the siliceous soils.
  • A perfect mid-week white wine but equally impressive to impress your dinner party
  • Wine Merchant Tip!  Wines from unclassified or declassified vineyards can offer near identical quality to that of appellation wines that command significantly higher prices.
  • Try me with any seafood dishes - From a simplistic Skagen Toast (Swedish Prawn Mayo) to a Friday night Fish & Chips or a whole roasted Turbot with Clams, Samphire and Buerre Blanc sauce.
