REGION: Pouilly-Fumé, Loire
VARIETIES: Sauvignon Blanc
Some years ago, André Dezat bought 4.5 hectares of particularly well-sited vineyard near Tracy. Since then, low yields and assiduous care taken both in the vineyard and cellars ensure a great wine with a pedigree second to none. It's not often a wine wins awards in this prestigious region, so it's not surprising that everyone has been astonished by the quality since their first vintage in 1984 won a gold medal in Paris. This is exactly what you'd expect - searingly fresh, and wonderfully drinkable.
