K&L Notes

After studying winemaking in Dijon and working abroad in South Africa and Australia, young vigneron Florian Mollet took over his family Domaine in 2000 with the idea of making it one of the great estates in Sancerre. He had a bit of a head start when you consider that Mollet controls the Clos du Roc de l’Abbaye’ vineyard, one of the great terroirs of Sancerre, which has been in the family’s holdings since 1850. The primary focus for the Domaine is on silex (flint) soils, which provide the signature flavor profile to his wines, making Sancerre and neighboring Pouilly-Fumé so distinctive. Mollet farms 11.5 hectares in Sancerre and 7 hectares in Pouilly-Fumé using mostly hand-pruning and harvesting techniques where most other producers rely heavily on machine harvesting. The Pouilly-Fumé is planted to silex and some limestone soils. It is fermented in stainless steel tanks with no malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged six months on the lees with battonage (stirring). With its notes of grapefruit and gunflint, it perfectly encapsulates the terroir of Pouilly-Fumé.

This crackling Pouilly Fume nervously offers you up explosive aromas of Ruby Red Grapefruit and fresh lime zest. The palate has great weight and depth showing all those citrus notes but adding some stone fruit flavors as well. This is expansive and long on finish. Worth putting a few in the cellar but so delicious right now!
