2019 Domaine Tinel-Blondelet "Arelles" Pouilly-Fumé (Previously $50)

SKU #1544872 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine shows all the minerality and tight texture of a young Pouilly Fumé. It also has apple and spice flavors, shot through with lime and lemon. The wine needs to age, so wait to drink from 2022. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

K&L Notes

After obtaining her winemaking degree in Beaune, vigneron Annick Tinel took over the estate from her parents, Camille & Fernand Blondelet, in 1983. She became the 12th generation wine grower at this estate in Pouilly-Sur-Loire, but the first to establish the domaine for its own commercial wine production. Comprised of 15 hectares, the holdings stretch over 6 parcels in Sancerre, 1 half hectare parcel in Pouilly-sur-Loire and 15 parcels in Pouilly-Fume. The domaine is garnering loads of critical attention for its precise terroir driven wines. "Arelles" is a blend of two sites: Arables and Fouinelles planted on Kimmeridgian marl and limestone soils. The vines were planted by Fernand Blondelet, Annick’s father, in the 1970s. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and reside longer on the lees than the regular cuvee, giving more texture and weight. This wine is a beauty now but should evolve well for another half-decade.

This stellar new Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire has all the style and guile I come to expect from the region of Pouilly-Fume. Loaded with gorgeous grapefruit peel, white peach and crunchy minerality. There is a sense of place and purpose in the wine as it lingers on the palate with its long finish. Absolutely delicious and an absolute steal at this price!
