Description: A truly seductive wine, the cuvée prestige is made from a blend of our three best plots, situated in the heart of Pouilly itself, complementing each other to deliver a full bodied, rich and complex wine. Elegant and full of charm, this white will present different families of aromas make up the bouquet: mineral notes (silex), almond and hazelnut, citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit, and pineapple), white fruits (peaches), bracken, acacia, breadcrumbs, buttered brioche, and honey. The texture is opulent, and the structure, thanks partly to the wine’s natural richness, is full of flavour. It is by nature delicate and distinguished. Serving temperature: 11 to 13°C.
Food Pairing: Straightforward, rich and complex, it has a characteristic hint of minerality which allows it to partner noble crustaceans (king prawns, lobster, crawfish, scallops), monkfish as well as foie gras. With acidity and smoothness sonicely in balance, it goes well with white meats such as veal or poultry in cream sauce, as well as many varieties of goat’s cheese. Its aromatic power means it can also match spicy and perfumed exotic dishes such as couscous, fish tajines, or sweet-and-sour prawns. Sushi is also enhanced by its minerality.
