Domaine de Maltaverne Pouilly Fume 'L'Ammonite'
This product is currently sold out.
Domaine de Maltaverne Pouilly Fumé 'L'Ammonite' from winemaker Gilles Maudry is superb example of properly made Sauvignon. Ripe and concentrated on the nose, smokey and grassy with minerality and a peppery herbaceous note. The palate is also super smokey with a wonderful flintiness, as well as herbal and bay aromas and ripe pink gooseberries. The beautiful label represents ammonite fossil shells found in Gilles vineyard, sketched by an artistic wine lover following a tasting, to represent what he visualised on savouring this wonderful wine. L'Ammonite goes with just about anything! Traditionally salmon, mussels or crab/lobster and chicken or veal, but also mushroom dishes, particularly omelette.Country: France
