Description

Domaine Seguin Pouilly Fume Cuvee 3 is a white wine from the Loire Valley, 100% Sauvignon Blanc. It is made by the small family owned wine estate of Domaine Seguin located 1 km to the east of Pouilly-sur-Loire. This is the estate’s top wine, their third wine created to celebrate the birth of their third child. Their other wines are the estate Pouilly Fume and the Prestige cuvee.

The origins of Domaine Seguin stretch back to the 19th Century when the Roumier family began farming 1.5 hectares of vines in the village of Les Berthiers. Ernst Seguin married into the Roumier family in 1905 and purchased some more vines in Le Bouchot increasing the size of the domain. Now on the sixth generation, the company remains family owned and the Seguin family have increases the size of the domaine to 19 hectares, all located in the Pouilly Fume AOC.

At Seguin, the family believe that the production of a good wine begins in the vineyard. The family work  (pruning, disbudding, tying-up etc.) in the vineyards themselves which enables them to keep a close eye on the vines and the grapes. The gaps between the rows of vines are ploughed or grassed regularly to encourage good biodiversity and healthy soils. The family have a gravity fed winery which is set over three levels, everything is moved via gravity removing the need for pumping. This is much more gentle on the wines.

The family have 22 plots of Sauvignon Blanc vines located on a variety of soils including limestone, Kimmeridgian marls and flint which help to produce the characters of fruitiness, aromatic strength and minerality in the wines. Domaine Seguin Pouilly Fume Cuvee 3 is a selection of only the estate’s very best grapes. The undergoes a traditional style vinification with alcoholic fermentation in barrel for approximately 6 weeks. The wine is then aged on the fine lees in 500 litre oak barrels which provides more fullness and richness to the wine.
