AOP Pouilly-Fumé

Domaine Joseph Mellot 2016

€495 Bottle of 10cl

This pale, yellow-gold colored Pouilly-Fumé is a dry, mineral-driven white wine with very typical Sauvignon Blanc aromas of herbaceousness, citrus and gooseberry. The initial sensation on the palate is fresh with flavours of citrus and especially grapefruit on the mid palate. Serve as an aperitif with smoked salmon or fish rillettes on toast.
