Domaine Moreux’s Pouilly-Fumé comes from a subtil blend of three different main terroirs mostly located in “Les Loges” and its surroundings. The finess of the Caillotes, the energy of the fire stone and the richness of the clay and limestone terroirs offer to the Domaine Moreux’s Pouilly-Fumé an elegance which make its own typicity and personality.
Culture raisonnée. Soil is plowed and only organic fertilizer is used when needed. Gentle pneumatic pressing spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. Vinification and maturation in stainless-steel and concrete tanks in contact with a layer of fine lees. Vinification works follow lunar cycle.
Light yellow, green tints. Expressive, fresh nose driven by citrus, blackcurrant bud and mineral undertones. Soft attack, fairly concentrated palate with generous, precise aromas. Smooth, dense mouthfeel.
Fresh seafood, grilled fish, meat roasted or toasted, cheese.
