ABOUT: Female winemaker Katia Mauroy has made some big changes at her family’s 14 hectare estate. Her wines are serious yet generous and among the best in the appellation as the gold trophies at the IWC awards attest to. The Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are grown on Kimmeridgain limestone, clay-chalk and sandy chalk and the finished wine is a blend of parcels from these three different soil types. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks the wine remained on its less for four months before racking and bottling. This Pouilly-Fumé is phenomenal for the price.
