À Peu Près Sauvignon Blanc 2019
‘À peu près’ means ‘more or less’ or ‘roughly’, and it’s a reference to that fact that this Sauvignon Blanc is pretty much a Pouilly-Fumé.
David Maudry – the owner of Domaine Lispaul and son of Domaine de Fontenille’s Patrick Maudry – makes À Peu Près Sauvignon Blanc from the young vines adjacent to his Pouilly-Fumé vineyard. Although these vines are unclassified, they share the exact same terroir and so this wine is to all intents and purposes a Pouilly-Fumé, albeit not in the eyes of French wine law. What that means for you is that you get Pouilly-Fumé at a fraction of the price and also without the dull and stuffy calligraphy labels. Revel in its flint, citrus tang, gooseberry sorbet and touch of smoke on a sea breeze; all the while remembering what a bargain you just bagged.
