Pouilly Fumé lives in the shadow of its more famous neighbour Sancerre. It’s a bit more intense and full-on than Sancerre, if that’s your thing (it is mine).

And Damien tells me Domaine des Berthiers is one of the most underrated estates in Pouilly Fumé.

It’s got amazing soils - 100% on silex (flintstone), the top soil in the region. This brings out the optimal flavour and expression of Sauvignon Blanc - you don’t get this anywhere else in the world.

Most of this wine is sold to high-end and Michelin-starred restaurants - they usually avoid retail but Damien thought WineSpark customers would be the perfect drinkers for this wine.

You’ll have to try it and find out for yourself!

The Loire is the true home of Sauvignon Blanc - nowhere else does it taste as pure, characterful and authentic.

I’ve got a pretty good contact here from my Naked years - Joost de Villebois - who owns one of the biggest family producers in the Sancerre area, Fournier Pere et Fils.

Delicious

Really like this wine. Light and easy drinking, but definitely not tasteless. Goes well with everything food-wise or just for quaffing on its own. A crowd pleaser!

Absolutely wonderful

Ordered this in our latest batch, it really is fantastic. Huge fruit on the nose and soft after taste. A great version of a classic at a super price point.

A crisp, fresh wine with a nice last to the flavour. Not too fruity.

It went down a treat with all the grown ups at Christmas and was great with crab starter and turkey. Happy to recommend and will buy again.
