93/100 Rebecca Gibb, Vinous
It is wine with lots of texture, a sense of roundness and completeness with a sense of satisfying grip that clasps the palate on the finish. There's lovely acidity, but it's nicely balanced.

95/100 James Suckling
Seems at first like a subtle expression of sauvignon, with initial aromas of lavender and light lemony citrus fruit. But on the palate you discover a deep-set, complex array of citrus and yellow fruit, together with a whole heap of terroir-driven nuances, from wet gray clay to sand and gravel. Full-bodied and super-silky with calm persistence. Long, mineral finish with some phenolic tightening. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Old vines. 

Grape sourced from Les Coûtes and Les Sapins. 0.46Ha. 35 to 40 year average age of vines. 7500 plant/Ha. South East facing. Yields 55L/Ha. Altitude 230m.

This wine is all about roundness with citrus aromas. The mouth is complex, intense with an elegant power at the end. It is the perfect pairing with sophisticated preparation from starter to dessert." - DOMAINE DU BOUCHOT



Sauvignon Blanc

Pouilly-Fumé, Loire Valley France

On the right bank of the Loire Valley they champion Sauvignon Blanc in their wines. The domaine has been biodynamically certified since 2009, allowing Antoine to step into a vineyard that shares his beliefs already. Being the first domaine to be certified Organic in the Pouilly-Fumé appellation, Antoine continued to push biodiversity and the correlation to the Lunar calendar to achieve Biodynamic certification soon after he took over.

There are 3 key wines of DOMAINE DU BOUCHOT, with all the grapes spread across nearly 15 hectares around Pouilly-Fumé. Parcels of Caillottes and Terres Blanches are the key two plots, with the third wine MCMLV also being from the Terres Blanches plot but only picked from the old vines bringing more depth to the bottle.

The Pouilly-Fumé appellation dates all the way back to 1937, when it was first established as "Blanc Fumé de Pouilly". At the same time, the village's wines made with Chasselas grapes were given the Pouilly-sur-Loire title. The Pouilly-Fumé name is actually a combination of two parts: 'Pouilly' is short for Pouilly-sur-Loire, the village of origin, and 'Fumé' is an affectionate nickname for Sauvignon Blanc. It's no wonder it often gets confused with the Burgundian Pouilly-Fuissé, a Chardonnay-based wine. 

The famous Pouilly-Fumé viticultural region covers seven parishes on the right bank of the Loire River - from Mesves-sur-Loire down south to Saint-Martin-sur-Nohain up north. Despite its Burgundian location, it's still a quintessentially 'Loire Valley' delicacy!
