2011MinetPF2011 Regis Minet, Pouilly-Fume Vieilles Vignes, Loire Valley, France.
Don’t miss this Sauvignon Blanc, this is the real deal, and another great discovery from the guys at Kermit Lynch in the Loire Valley. The Minet Pouilly-Fume 2011 is an intense white with striking mineral and chalky notes giving a nice steely edge along with lemon/lime, gooseberry, melon and hints of grapefruit fruits plus a touch of herb. Everything is in sharp focus here and acidity is firmly electric and lifting heightening the experience, this is a super wine and well crafted. This classy Sauvignon Blanc is what summer is begging for and you shouldn’t wait long to grab this detailed and vibrant wine, it will no doubt go fast, drink now through 2018.
