Description

LOIRE: Extraordinary & exceptional. Not tasted anything like it before!! Huge ageing potential of 10-15 years. Yes it is 15% ABV alcohol according to the label.

LOIRE: A focused nose, displaying intense fruit aromas. The palate is loyal to the nose with flinty notes followed by a continued minerality and freshness. Piercing acidity makes this a mouth-watering wine, with a rich, concentrated finish that simply lasts. It is recommended to decant before serving. Huge ageing potential.

This a one of a pair of stunning Sauvignon’s with the same viticulture and vinification but grown on different soil types and this one is from Portlandian limestone soils, also called ‘Caillottes’.

Additional information

MIchell Redde et Fils

Family History
The Redde family have been vigneron for 14 generations; the knowledge passed from father to son has given them a detailed understanding of their vineyards and allows them to create expressive and highly individual wines.

The domaine's current size and cellar is entirely down to the work of Michel Redde, the father of current owner Thierry. Michel worked to expand the family's vineyard holdings and created La Moynerie domaine and cellar during the middle part of the twentieth century. He was also responsible for developing the market and reputation of the family's wines.

Wines
The speciality of the Redde family is a series of single vineyard wines from the communes of Tracey-Sur-Loire, Pouilly-Sur-Loire and Saint Andelain. Each comune is an example of one of the 3 main soil types in Pouilly-Fume appellation and the 3 wines express the complex charateristics of each. The Cuvée Majorum, their flagship wine, is only produced in the best vintages and is from their oldest vines which are in excess of 45 years old.

The La Moynerie is their signature Pouilly-Fumé and is a blend of grapes from different locations from vineyards older than 15 years. The youngest grapes between 10-15 years old go to the Petit-Fumé a fresh vibrant wine perfect for everyday drinking.
