Pouilly-Fumé Génetin 2017 Tinel-Blondelet

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc 100%

Annick Tinel-Blondelet has been managing the Domaine since 1983, the year in which he obtained his diploma in Oenology in Beume. Annick becomes the twelfth generation of family winemakers. Their story begins with Guillaume Blondelet, winemaker at Chaulgnes, at the end of the sixteenth century. On the Camille side, the traces of the first family winemakers date back to 1650 with Louis Figeat. Recently his daughter Marlène joined the management, which consequently represents the thirteenth generation.

Not wanting to adhere to the protocols of organic viticulture, which due to the high intrinsic humidity of the Loire, would require massive interventions with copper, from 2014 their vineyards have the HVE Haute Valeur Environnementale Certification (High environmental value). This certification, recognized by the French Ministry of Agriculture, guarantees the efforts of Annick and Marlène in wanting to preserve the environment in the best possible way.

Today the estate covers 15 hectares of vineyards distributed over three denominations: Pouilly Fumé, Sancerre and Pouilly sur Loire.

They exclusively cultivate three varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Chasselas and Pinot Noir, on three different soils: the marls of the Kimmeridgian period, limestone of Villiers and silica.

The grapes that go to create the Pouilly-Fumé Genetin come from a 3.8 hectare vineyard. The soil is composed of the Villiers limestone.

Density per hectare: it is 6400 vines, while the yield per hectare is 55 hectoliters.

Plants are 35 years old, and sun exposure is south south east.

After the harvest, the grapes reach the cellar. The juice decants statically and subsequently carries out the alcoholic fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless steel containers. It does not effect the malolactic transformation, and it refines on the residues of yeasts, with repeated Batonnage.

Pouilly-Fumé Génetin 2017 Tinel-Blondelet

Straw yellow color.

The nose has clear, clean and very high quality aromas. Intense and qualitatively commendable, it immediately stands out for its high quality and variety of fragrances. There is no doubt: we are in front of a champion. The sensations are of citrus fruits, with lime, bergamot and mandarin. Followed by notes of flowers and celery. Some ideas of flint, and of gunpowder are presented with education and respect.

It is perfectly balanced on the palate. Excellent hardness, but well balanced by the combination of softness. The palate confirms the substantial expectations. Aromas of grapefruit arrive

.When you taste a wine like this, you can use so many words to be rich, or few, because they are completely superfluous. You choose, but above all buy it and taste it. You will forget the noble and expensive Pouilly-Fumè in an instant, and you will thank us.

My opinion is that The Pouilly-Fumé Génetin 2017 Tinel-Blondelet is simply gorgeous. One of the highest interpretations of Sauvignon Blanc.
