“En Travertin” is concentrated and very fruity while also being stylish and elegant. Sauvignon grape variety is the most dominant aspect of this charming wine. It displays its elegance, fruitiness – white fruits, light citrus – and is very persistent on the palate.
This wine is a marvellous match with shellfish, fish, white meats and goat cheese. For example a Turbot with spinach and Feta cheese, or a Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese with toasted sesame seeds.
After a gentle pressing and 24 hour settling of the juice, the wine ferments in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks a t 1 5 – 1 8 ° C . These long fermentations give more intense and delicate aromas. The wine, then, needs five months of maturation on its fine lees at cool temperature before bottling.
This wine is the feminine expression of the Sauvignon Blanc. Pure, complex and attractive.
This Pouilly-Fumé comes from the chalky-clay hills of Saint-Andelain, peak of the appellation where winegrowing dates back to the roman era. It’s terroir made of hard calcareous rock gives Pouilly-Fumé its minerality, finesse, its rather fresh and lively character and its name. « En Travertin » is in fact a form of limestone formed by sedimentation.
