• Cuvée Domaine SEGUIN
    Pouilly Fumé
 
 

This Cuvée is a blend of the three terroirs of our Domain and reveals all the complexity and all the flavors of the Sauvignon blanc.

The parcels are in majority located on limestone and kimmeridgian marls, and about 15% on flint. This wine gives off citrus fruits and white flowers aromas. The mouth is ample with a hint of minerality (typical “gun-flint” aroma).

The 2016 vintage

2016 was a very difficult vintage : the frost of April 27th destroyed a large part of the future crop. The spring was very wet and cold and the flowering lasted about ten days instead of five usually. Finally the climatic conditions from middle of July allowed harvesting high quality grapes.

The harvest began on October 3rd, 2016 .

The sanitary state of the grapes was excellent and we have done a light settling (about 5% of the juice). The characteristic of this vintage is the homogeneity of the grapes maturity and a very nice expression of the Sauvignon grape variety. The yield was about 30 hectoliters/hectare.

The first tastings reveal aromas of citrus fruits (lemon, rose grapefruit), exotic fruits (pineapple, mango), and mineral aromas (“flint” taste) typical of the appellation. The palate is rounded with exotic and mineral notes, as well as a long-lasting taste.

 
 

 

 

  • Cuvée  PRESTIGE
    Pouilly Fumé
 
 

This Cuvée is elaborated with old vineyard plots (40 years old) planted in the three different terroirs (about one third of each : marls, limestone and flint). Thanks to this diversity of terroirs, the tasting of this wine reveals complex aromas : fruitiness (limestone), roundness (marls), and minerality (flint).

The 2016 vintage

 

The harvest for this Cuvée began on October 5th, 2016.

The sanitary state of the grapes was excellent. We have done a light settling (about 5% of the juice). The characteristic of this vintage is the homogeneity of the grapes maturity and a very nice expression of the Sauvignon grape variety.

This wine already expresses a nice minerality with iodine flavors. The tasting reveals aromas of citrus fruits (grapefruit in particular) with notes of white peach and white flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Cuvée     Le   " 3 " 
    Pouilly Fumé
 
 

This is our third Cuvée, created after the birth of our third child and reflecting the three terroirs of our Domain : fruitiness of the limestone, aromatic strength of the kimmeridgian marls and minerality of the flint. The maturing in 500 liters oak barrels reveals the typicity of this wine. The ageing lasted six months and we made the bottling on July 28, 2015.

 

 

 

This cuvee is the result of a selection of high quality grapes (2014 vintage). The mouth is very ample, the wood remains discreet (notes of roasted almond, vanilla) and blends pleasantly with the fruitiness of the Sauvignon.
