Description

Domaine Seguin Pouilly Fume Cuvee Prestige is a white wine from the Loire Valley, 100% Sauvignon Blanc. This is one of three Pouilly Fume wines that the family produce including the main estate wine and their top wine, the Cuvée 3.

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 Cuvée Prestige is produced as a blend of three plots of old wines (40 years old). Each plot is is located on each of the terroirs typical of the Pouilly Fumé appellation (limestone / calcareous, Kimmeridgian flint and marl). The wine  undergoes a traditional style vinification for 20 days weeks in temperature controlled stainless steel vats which preserves the fruity aromas of the wine. Domaine Seguin Pouilly Fume Cuvee Prestige is aged on the fine lees for 6 months. Finally the wine is racked and blended prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

Domaine Seguin Pouilly Fume pairs remarkably well with seafood, fruits de mer, oysters and goat cheese. Also superb as an aperitif.
