Pouilly-Fume La Levee
Top 6% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
From: France, Pouilly-Fumé AOC
By: Domaine Alexandre Bain
A decadent white from Domaine Alexandre Bain in the beautiful Tracy-sur-Loire. The wine’s deep colour and richness comes from being harvested late in the season when the sun has had ample time to nurture the vines. This is a ‘juicy’ Pouilly Fume with a hint of tomatoes, florals and fresh Virginia tobacco.
Alexandre Bain is passionate about working the land, inspired by his farmer grandfather. Aged eighteen, Alexandre went to a winemaking school in Beaune then worked on several vineyards until he had the means to buy a few hectares of his own. Alexandre’s Domaine has more than a few hectares now, but he still works the land himself – with the help of his horse Phenomene. Grapes are harvested late in the season to ensure optimum ripeness, the result is a Pouilly Fume unlike any other.
